My favorite chapters were "You can read minds" and "You won't want to play Suduko again" It was fun to see how the magician does the trick and I was so satisfied with myself that I could follow the well explained code. The code was almost as magic as the trick itself. The Suduko chapter did ruin the game for me -- now that I know how to write a program to solve it, there is no challenge in doing it with a pencil. That is not so bad, because now I like puzzles that require some insight.
After reading the book, it is surprising to see how many computer science principles are covered. Each chapter starts by stating the paradigms covered but I did not pay attention to that. It was only after reading most of the book, did I go back and see how much was covered and it felt like more than I would have learned in a whole semester's course.
