I loved the problems, the responses, the sarcasm I have to say that I read it in Czech translation, and that it has a beautiful cover you can sort of unfold it, it s pink but nice pink , it has a lot of additional info about Lewis C I don t know how the English version looks but the Czech one is amazing And I liked that you could solve the problems with logic, pen, and paper Sometimes just in your head Nothing overcomplicated, just fun and numbers.
