Three Logicians Walk Into A Bar… The Greatest Math Riddles

SPIEGEL bestseller

After his Spiegel bestsellers Je mehr Löcher, desto weniger Käse (“The More Holes, the Less Cheese”) and Nullen machen Einsen groß (“Zeros Make Ones Big”), the science journalist and math aficionado Holger Dambeck once again leads us into the fascinating world of mathematical-logical brainteasers. What makes a successful riddle so exciting is that there’s no obvious solution. Which makes Dambeck’s credo all the more important: “There may be rules. But if you really want to have fun, you have to get creative.” In this book, Dambeck now presents his personal collection of the 100 greatest logic and number riddles: How do the ladies man Casanova and math become a dream team? How many matches are played at the world’s largest table-tennis championship in Ping Pong Town? And what do three logicians do anyway when they want to order a beer?
