    Beware! This starts out as a puzzle book, then evolves into a challenging look at modern logic. Good stuff, but it turned out to be beyond me.

    This is one of most original puzzle book I've ever read. It is hellish in difficulty. For amateur puzzle lover like me, Metapuzzle is the furthest chapter I can enjoy. From The Mystery of Monte Carlo Lock, it is interesting but I can't fully grasp the concept for now. Reading it was fun, though. It is like playing game with gradually increasing challenge. First three number is warm up for brain. Then things get more difficult. It is recommended to read the book in order since the puzzle difficult This is one of most original puzzle book I've ever read. It is hellish in difficulty.

Reading it was fun, though. It is like playing game with gradually increasing challenge. First three number is warm up for brain. Then things get more difficult. It is recommended to read the book in order since the puzzle difficulties (and story line) are set that way. Moreover, some puzzles require knowledge of previous ones. It is harder to skip than not to. Overall, I like this book. It's just too sophisticated for casual puzzle seekers. It is recommended to build up reasoning ability. If you are interested in pure math and logic domain, further chapters discuss Gödel's theory.

    This book is alright. I learned about the text from a very basic discrete math class I took Freshmen year of college. This is exactly what I think this book would be fun for: teaching a class like that, and assigning some puzzles. Otherwise, for most parts, I'm not going to spend a lot of time thinking about these complex puzzles. They get pretty ridiculous- such as involving vampires who only tell lies who may or may not be insane. There are also puzzles about algorithm generation, which turns in This book is alright.

Otherwise, for most parts, I'm not going to spend a lot of time thinking about these complex puzzles. They get pretty ridiculous- such as involving vampires who only tell lies who may or may not be insane. There are also puzzles about algorithm generation, which turns into discussions of Godel and Tarski Especially since I've already take courses like that, I didn't really want to read things about them again in this form. But it all depends on timing. I kinda wish I read this a long time ago, when I was only in high school.

    A book of logic puzzles. I used to devour these things as a kid. Now, once I've figured out the general approach of how to solve the puzzle, I lose interest. (i.e., I can definitely relate to this Order of the Stick comic.) That said, this collection is a great example of it's kind. A book of logic puzzles. I used to devour these things as a kid.

    More logic fun from Smullyan! Not quite as wide-ranging as some of his other collections -- it's essentially a second helping of the Boolean logic puzzles he first served up in "What Is The Name Of This Book?", followed by an allegorical introduction to Gödel's Incompleteness Theorem (among other things). Still a great way to kill a Sunday or three, though. Bring plenty of scratch paper. More logic fun from Smullyan!

    Este libro fue publicado después de ¿Cómo se llama este libro? y va en la misma estela: comienza con acertijos, puzzles y rompecabezas lógicos variados y, sin que te des cuenta, acabas estudiando preguntas sobre teoría de la computabilidad, en el mismo núcleo de la esencia de la Matemática. Y te quedas un poco como "pero si yo solo quería un librín de pasatiempos matemáticos". Me recuerda también a las "fáciles" y "alegres" historias de la liebre y la tortuga en Gödel, Escher, Bach.

    Read. Not solved. Some of the puzzles were really hard.

    This book is an interesting combination of logic problems, brain-teasers and a brief explanation of Godel's theory. Well written! This book is an interesting combination of logic problems, brain-teasers and a brief explanation of Godel's theory. Well written!

    I had a quick look at the puzzles about the Lady or the Tiger and they were pretty good - especially the last one. Looking forward to having time to read the rest.

    Raymond Smullyan is my Logician Dumbledore. I own and read every book of his I can get my hands on. Which is well over a dozen.
