Rather than simply a collection of problems, this book can be thought of as both a tool chest of mathematical techniques and an anthology of mathematical verse. The authors have grouped problems so as to illustrate and highlight a number of important techniques and have provided enlightening solutions in all cases. As well as this there are essays on topics that are not only beautiful but also useful. The essays are diverse and enlivened by fresh, non-standard ideas. This book not only teaches techniques but gives a flavour of their past, present and possible future implications. It is a collection of miniature mathematical works in the fullest sense.
