The Unexpected Hanging and Other Mathematical Diversions Summary


The Unexpected Hanging and Other Mathematical Diversions by Martin Gardner

Seasoned with Gardner's interest in the history and philosophy of science, this delightful book is a treasure-trove of puzzles, anecdotes, games, and logical theory. These intriguing problems, collected from Gardner's Scientific American columns, involve knots, interlocking rings, rotations and reflections, logical paradox, two-dimensional universes, chess strategies, and gambling odds. "Gardner conjures problems that are both profound and silly; exquisite truths and outrageous absurdities; paradoxes, anagrams, palindromes and party tricks...He knows, better than most, how many amazing true things there are in the world."--Newsweek
