The method is simple but the number of questions you ask at each stage of the method makes thee solution very rich and the understanding of the problem very deep. The ultimate test of maths is “ By how many methods can you solve a problem and which of them is the most efficient?”
You will enjoy every word the master has written.
If you have a mathematical acumen then this book would seduce you the very instant that you start reading the novel proofs shared.
Even for me who had a slight mathematical distaste, the book was entertaining but i feel solving such problems will make one a better problem solver in general.
So go ahead and buy this book only if you are passionate about applying problem solving skills in your area of problem domain. Wish you good luck :D
I wish i would have read it in my student life.."Do not learn methods and facts ..develop investigative skills in math"
