In Perilous Problems for Puzzle Lovers, Alex Bellos collects 125 of the world’s greatest stumpers–many dangerous to your person, and all dangerous to your pride. Brace yourself to wrestle with wordplay, grapple with geometry, and scramble for survival. Bellos pairs his fiendish brain teasers with fascinating history, so you’ll meet Alcuin, Sam Loyd, and other puzzle masters of yore–in between deranged despots and wily jailers with an unaccountable taste for riddles.
