Description for Professor Povey's Perplexing Problems: Pre-University Physics and Maths Puzzles

Review

'A great book for entertaining and educating anyone with an interest in puzzles'. * Mathematics Today * `Quirky... impressive... whether you want to learn some new methods or brush up on old skills, this book is a fun way to do it' * BBC Focus * `Intriguing... What it does, and does very successfully, is explain the style of thinking and analysis interviewers are seeking... This isn't your run-of-the-mill puzzle book' * E&T Magazine * 'If you fancy doing physics, maths or engineering at university - or wish you once had - it is an absolute must-have buy.' -- Brian Clegg * Popular Science * `Povey collects his favorite "pre-university" problems in math and physics and presents them informally in a welcoming style... Highly recommended.' * ALA CHOICE Magazine * `Strong's exhaustive study of Buddhisms is both accessible and informative. The volume's greatest strength is the vast detail and breadth of Buddhism that it manages to cover while preserving a sense of what makes Buddhism what it is across a variety of geographic and temporal ranges. The breadth of the book notwithstanding, Strong does well to express the personal experience of Buddhism, and it is clear that this work is the result of decades of research.' * ALA CHOICE Magazine *
