The book is a must for any recreational mathematician. -- Ian Stewart, Scientific American, September 2000.
The first in-depth examination of Hex and how to master it. -- Mark Chadbourn, Oce Image Magazine, January 2001.
The only substantial study of the game so far... highly recommended. -- D. V. Feldman, Choice: Current Reviews for Academic Libraries, October 2001.
From the Author
Invented by Piet Hein and John Nash, two of this century's greatest mathematicians, Hex continues to intrigue board game players and mathematicians around the world. This book is an attempt to draw together everything known about Hex that is relevant and interesting to the player, from basic and advanced strategies to puzzles. I hope "Hex Strategy" conveys my enthusiasm for this wonderful game.
