All real life mathematics is problem solving. And all those fascinated by puzzles are problem solvers at heart. But thinking mathematically is a skill we have to learn and one which it is easy to forget. Recreational mathematicians and students can practice problem solving in different ways. In this book solving puzzles is practiced in a different way from most books they will have seen before: # Readers get no clues to what the puzzle is about # They may take hours or even days to work out what is being asked of them # Even after that, some problems may have no solution. The result is a really challenging book that will fascinate anyone interested in puzzles and recreational mathematicians in particular. MORE WITHOUT WORDS contains 36 more puzzles with fewer easy and more testing ones. The idea is to sit with a puzzle or two over a number of days and wait for a moment of inspiration or insight to arrive. That is the true mathematical experience!
