'In this book you can immerse yourself in the joys of [...] the amazing buzz you get when you've struggled to crack a challenging puzzle and then suddenly you see a clever way to unlock the enigma' - Marcus du Sautoy
'As a school maths teacher, I thrive on writing puzzles for my students. Now teacher becomes student, as I roll up my sleeves and get stuck into these puzzles. Many of my students have participated in UKMT maths challenges, so it's a chance for everyone to put their grey matter to the test! A must have book for anyone that wants to stretch their mind' - Bobby Seagull, author of The Life-Changing Magic of Numbers
