Description

In More Puzzles, Math wizard Shakuntala Devi has presented various Mathematical puzzles and riddles in an entertaining and interesting way.

Summary Of The Book

It was always Shakuntala Devi’s belief that Mathematics, which many people find drab, boring, and difficult, can be made simple, interesting and fun. Her books of puzzles in Mathematics were written with this very aim of making Maths entertaining and interesting for the readers.

More Puzzles follows her earlier book of puzzles, Puzzles To Puzzle You. This book gives us another set of challenging, stimulating and varied mathematical puzzles. It has over 300 puzzles, riddles, and brain teasers. The author has included puzzles on varied topics, including Geometry, Elementary Algebra, and Arithmetic. There are problems based on Time, Money, Distance, Age, and many other topics. The topics are varied, and so are the levels of difficulty. The solutions of each of the problems is given in a logical and clear way.

These stimulating puzzles not only improve our mathematical and problem-solving skills, but the fun-learning also makes the puzzles very entertaining. More Puzzles provide good practice for those who want to improve their mathematical abilities, and is also very helpful for students who are attempting mathematical skill tests. Through her puzzles, Shakuntala Devi shows that if Mathematics is treated as a fun activity and turned into a game, it is easier, and more fun to learn.

About Shakuntala Devi

Born in Bangalore, in November 1929, Shakuntala Devi was a child prodigy whose mathematical skills awed generations.

She wrote various books, especially on mathematics. Mathability: Awaken The Math Genius In Your Child, Super Memory: It Can Be Yours, Book of Numbers, Figuring: The Joy Of Numbers, In The Wonderland of Numbers, and Puzzles To Puzzle You, are some of her popular books. Also an astrologer, Shakuntala Devi wrote, Astrology For You.

Aptly known as the human computer, Shakuntala Devi demonstrated her skills at the University of Mysore, at the age of 6, and at Annamalai University at the age of 8. She started displaying her mathematical skills at the tender age of 3. In 1977, she competed with a computer in Dallas to find the cube root of a 9-digit number and won. Her calculating records also hold a place in the Guinness Book Of World Records. She also wrote cookbooks and fictional novels. Shakuntala Devi died in Bangalore in April 2013.

Good service, average book

As always, good and timely service from flipkart.
as for the book, this one is more based on quantitative puzzles. good for a beginner, but has some mistakes/typos/wrong english expressions. The "puzzles to puzzle you" by the same author was better
