    1. A great book for my short commutes - I can do a few riddles every ride and not break up a narrative or long train of thought. Probably about a third of the riddles are only simple computation, which is a disappointment. Some of the logic puzzles are just longer computations, but as the book progresses, the mix appears to be getting to better concepts. I love the tricky probability puzzlers and can only wish there were more!

    2. Not bad -- a third of the puzzles feel like algebra or logic problems you'd find in a textbook, and there are entire chapters in which Smullyan is presenting new (albeit fascinating) ideas in logic rather than solvable puzzles, but there are an equal number of gems in here as well. Good for a long road trip with a nerdy friend.

    3. "Hádanky?" řekl král. "Miluji hádanky! Řekneš mi dnes večer nějaké, jestliže odložím tvou popravu?""Budu ti jich několik vyprávět noc co noc, dokud se tvá královská jasnost uráčí ponechat mě naživu," odpověděla Šeherezáda.Americký matematik, logik a filosof Raymond Smullyan je pozoruhodná osobnost. Narodil se roku 1919 v New Yorku a od dětství projevoval výrazné nadání jednak v matematice, jednak v hudbě. Postupně studoval hru na klavír, filosofii, logiku a [...]

    4. A fun collection of logic puzzles and riddles. I will definitely save this to share with older kids, it's a little mind bending but fun for the most part.

    5. It wasn't bad but many of the math puzzles were just basic arithmetic. Also the idea of coercive logic puzzles was an interesting one but it led to many arguments when I tried to discuss it in larger groups.

    6. Riddle of Scheherazade, The: And Other Amazing Puzzles, Ancient and Modern by Raymond M. Smullyan (1997)

    7. 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.
