Review:
What are the odds of tossing heads four times in succession? How many ways can five band members arrange themselves for a group photo? These are among the 26 puzzles in this book that involve combinations, predictions, luck and chance. Logical thinking is more important than math in solving the brainteasers, although the proofs usually involve mathematical explanations. The cover is a game board in which nine octagons must be rotated to positions to make the colors on all adjacent sides match.
