    Description

    For many, mathematics is a scary subject that they have been taught to hate right from their childhood. The subject is often termed as hard and tedious, and people hardly take the time to delve into its formulae and theories.

    Mathematics can be fun, though, when approached in the right way. This puzzle book shows its readers delightful ways in which they can tease their brains and make them work, through solving some very interesting maths problems. Puzzles to Puzzle You features exciting and intriguing mathematical puzzles that will help readers sharpen their maths skills in a fun way.

    The puzzles here are devised and presented by Shakuntala Devi, the well-known mathematical genius from India. Matching wits with the genius and trying to solve the puzzles can be a very interesting and productive activity, especially for students, children, and professionals.

    This book is designed in such a way that the given problems can be solved numerically, rather than logically. Puzzles To Puzzle You can be used as a preparation guide by readers who have to appear for general tests and examinations that feature a quantitative section. It can also be used by people who are appearing for public service exams.

    About The Author
    Shakuntala Devi is a well known Indian mathematical genius. She is a prodigy, and is often termed as a ‘human calculator’, thanks to her skills.
    Shakuntala has written many puzzle books, and books on the subject of mathematics. Her other books include Super Memory: It Can Be Yours, The Book of Numbers, Figuring Joy of Numbers, Mathability: Awaken The Math Genius In Your Child, and In The Wonderland Of Numbers.


    She was born in Bangalore, India, in the year 1939, and hails from a very humble background. Even from a very young age, her skills were obvious. She shot to fame when she defeated a computer, the UNIVAC 1108 in a race to calculate the cube root of 188138517.

    About this puzzle book

    I have bought this book very long ago, but spent time reading it recently. This is a very good book. I expect puzzles to be twisting and giving food for thought but not too assuming.

    Almost all the questions are very good except few which might have multiple solutions and some questions pose to give insufficient data to solve the problem. In such cases assumption is required at higher levels and can be solved by hit and trial methods. Few questions in this book can be solved by direct frami...

    Decent book for sharpening your mathematical thinking

    Though some of the puzzles are mainstream, but the context in which they are laid out is commendable. Then there are the puzzles for which you really bought this book which just sets your brain in super mode and involves a great level of mathematical thinking to be able to solve such problems. These highly thought provoking puzzles are comparatively less in number (~30-40 out of 150 total). It also contains a fair amount of conceptual problems with no or little solving part as such which I th...

    Book Title must be Math Puzzles

    Good things puzzles are not nonsensical and are not made to deceive.

    I handle the book with care but in this book some pages are coming out,

    If u r a puzzle lover I bet that there will be less question which would be new to u.

    If u have read some foreign author's book u may get the same question in the same word and in the same unit.

    and if u haven't read any puzzle book it is good to start from this.

    Decent puzlle book, with some really nice mathematical puzzles.

    I ordered it on Thursday and got in on Monday, i.e., in three working days. Nicely packed and in due time. It's a decent puzzle book that has mathematical puzzles. It doesn't contain puzzles with lame and stupid tricks to fool you. Instead there are certain fixed (but not limited) ways to solve a problem. Good Book for someone who has interest in applied mathematics. Not for someone who hates mathematics and is more interested in logical puzzle solving. For that, I'll recommend Puzzles and Te...
