Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

The life of Henry Ernest Dudeney is certainly one of the more interesting. Coming from a line that includes a shepherd that taught himself the elements of both astronomy and mathematics, it became clear that Henry was destined for great things. By the time he turned 9, he began to publish the puzzles and problems that he was creating in his local newspaper. This is very impressive for a young man that never attended college or got anything more than a basic education. In 1893, he began to work with Sam Loyd on creating the mathematical puzzles that he remains famous for today. Of course, some of the more interesting puzzles that were created were done by Dudeney, but Loyd took full credit for them and published these items under his own name. Up until his death, Dudeney continued to create a series of puzzles that caught the attention of the world. After his death, his wife gathered a collection of these puzzles and released the book, Puzzles and Curious Problems in 1931.

Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
This excellent collection of teasers has inferential problems in arithmetic and algebra, and includes geometry, mazes, magic squares and a lot of chess-board tours. The answers are often gems in themselves -- things mentioned in passing and left to the reader to establish -- e.g. "... of the twelve ways that eight queens can be placed on a chessboard without attacking one another..." At twelve years old I spent many an hour finding those twelve ways. There is a small problem with the age of the book, first published in 1917. You could buy an airplane for 400 pounds ($1,680) then, and the money puzzles in the first chapter assume familiarity with British pounds, shillings and pence (and ha'pennies and farthings). The Dover edition of 1958 included a preface on British coins and stamps, and another on the game of cricket, but this edition was in 8vo rather than the original quarto, making some of the diagrams very small. I received my copy in 1936, at age eleven, and have cherished it ever since. I still find challenges in it in spite of my Masters degree in Mathematical Physics!

Dudeney was one of the two fathers of puzzles today. Amusements in Mathematics has many of Dudeney's best puzzles. An excellent book.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Some Kindle deficiencies 10. Mai 2010
Von batpox - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I have this paper book, but wanted a copy for my Kindle DX. There are a few versions for the Kindle, but I shelled out a few bucks for the one that said it was optimized for larger readers.

Although it reads well, and there are illustrations, the Table of Contents doesn't work. I mean, it is there (you can see it), but it is non-functional. A bit diappointing, since I'll have to tag the locations for the chapters myself.

I think Amazon should have a bullet list when selling electronic books that tell you things like this.

I'll keep the book anyway, but there was no reason that whoever threw this up there didn't take the time to do it right.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Entertaining and Instructive Collection of Mathematical Puzzles A - Must Have for Puzzle Lovers 19. Juli 2006
Von David De Sousa - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
With 430 puzzles, problems, paradoxes, and brain teasers, this book is a mammoth puzzle collection, compared with most math teasers and puzzles book available. But what is important is not the quantity, but the quality and charm of the problems presented. Each problem is presented with a full length solutions that makes the book absolutely an instructive experience for the reader. In some cases the author even discussed on how others had attacked and failed the problems.

Additionally the book is fully illustrated with clever diagrams and sketches, which make the reading even more pleasant for everyone. You, your freinds and family will spend many hours trying the vast array of puzzles prented in this book.

1.0 von 5 Sternen No illustrations 24. Dezember 2010
Von J. Harris - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This review is for the kindle edition.

Unlike the other reviewer who had no working TOC, but had illustrations, my copy had a functional TOC and NO illustrations. I think the figures and illustrations are essential, and without them the book is worthless.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Free Kindle version missing illustrations. 10. Januar 2011
Von David Grossberg - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
As others have mentioned, the free Kindle version is not worth the space it takes up because the illustrations are missing. Reviewed on a Kindle 2.
