Editorial Reviews

Review

Even well-known puzzles retain their power, as was made clear again and again last month at the seventh "Gathering for Gardner." These conferences of mathematicians, puzzlers, game-players and magicians at the Ritz-Carlton here began as personal tributes to Martin Gardner, Scientific American's legendary Mathematical Games columnist, and now take place without the master's presence (he is 91). During four days of talks and tricks, the oldest puzzles mixed freely with the newest.

Format: Hardcover
The puzzles of Gardiner (and others) took the edge off the pain of loneliness that is the inevitable result of being an extremely literate but physically uncoordinated kid. As I began to integrate with the "normal" kids, I discovered that my love for these puzzles was not unique; what was different about me was merely the respective age at which we became able to appreciate them (read: "to actually solve a few of them").

Here is my puzzle for you: This book is (at this writing) available as a PDF download from the publisher. And it's free! You should be able to find it without much difficulty (if the offer is still good when you read this). The only clue I will give you is "the numeral one followed by a hundred zeros, misspelled."

Format: Hardcover
A interesting book: I appreciated above all the classification of puzzles of J.Dagelty & E.Hordern. I should like better that more contributions would have had a bibliography like the Diophantine Recreations of David Singmaster.
