I know that not everyone is going to use the American system and I’m not being ethnocentricit’s just that I had to look up all of the values of British currency to be able to do most of the riddles. Furthermore, some of them actually require you to physically have experienced the coins in order to do the riddle as they are about recalling size. It’s probably not a fault of the book, but my point is that being in contemporary society is going put you at a disadvantage to solving a lot of the riddles.

I do puzzles to stay sharp. One person found this helpful.
The diagrams are missing from the Kindle edition, which makes many of the problems incomprehensible. This is a classic book, and I’m not saying anything against it, but the Kindle edition is trash. The reviews for this book appear to be a combination of the reviews for three versions: Mathemaitcs purchased the the Qontro Classic Books July 12, version and found that this version is almost completely useless – similar to the Kindle version – as there are NO illustrations which are relevant to many of the problems and answers.
I’ll likely end up throwing the Qontro Classic Books July 12, version in the trash and buying the CreateSpace February 28, version. I have no expectations regarding formatting of free kindle mathematicw, and this one did not disappoint. That said, I totally love these puzzles, particularly the ones involving Brittish currency–they add a degree of difficulty that stretches me to the max–and yet you can always move on to the next one and try again.
Amusements in Mathematics: Henry Ernest Dudeney: : Books
The mathematixs puzzles are somewhat easier and probably a better place to begin. A good book made bad by the editors. But not a single diagram or sketch is attached. As such we cannot understand the problem.
I wanted to get a book of math puzzles to goof off with my kids. This would have been fine if I lived in Britain. So, I am disappointed, but it would be awesome for someone in London!
