You won’t know where the tiger will be until you encounter it. Now you know the tiger can’t be the last word, because then it wouldn’t be unexpected; having read all the words but one without finding the tiger, you would know the tiger was next before you actually saw it.

By the same logic, the tiger couldn’t be the penultimate word, either, because if you read up to the third-to-last word, you’d know the tiger would come next, and you’d exp [ Warning: By the same logic, the tiger couldn’t be the penultimate word, either, because if you read up to the third-to-last word, you’d know the tiger would come next, and you’d expect it.

You can extend this line of reasoning to prove that the tiger can’t be anywhere within the review. The collection includes some famous conundrums, such as Zeno’s Paradox, Pascal’s Wager, Simpson’s Paradox in the form of a search for swingers at a singles’ club and the Gambler’s Fallacy.

Examples are illustrated TIGER with crude but hilarious drawings some of which originally appeared in a series of filmstrips anyone remember filmstrips?

This book is lots of fun for accomplished and aspiring nerds, but is also a good first introduction to infinite sets and very basic probability theory. Feb 08, Javier Santaolalla rated it liked it. Dicho esto, el libro trata sobre paradojas en diferentes bloques: A gift from my father in The world is lesser without Martin Gardner in it. Martin Gardner was a supremely intelligent mathematician with a real talent for explaining complex mathematical problems in a way that lay people could understand.

It’s kind of an odd book, in that the cartoony style is a little dated and it really looks more like a kid’s book or a Young Adult book. Make no mistake, it’s not, though young adults could certainly benefit and enjoy.


Gardner primarily gaardner logica The world is lesser without Martin Gardner in it. Gardner primarily approaches logical fallacies in this book. He uses the cartoons to walk you through exactly the wrong conclusion, then steps back and brilliantly deconstructs paraxojas argument so that you can see where your normal human condition fails you and why the unintuitive answer is the mathematically correct one.

That said, he does it in a way that involves minimal math and only a basic understanding of logic and reason.

That’s not to say the book is dumb or dumbed down. Nothing could be further from the truth. It tackles some very complex problems and some issues that have confounded mathematicians and logicians for centuries.

Some of the problems don’t even have an answer, and he even manages to walk you through why we’ve been unable to answer the question even though the answer seems obvious. Overall, it’s just a delightful book that’s easy to read and leaves you much smarter than you were when you started it.

There’s not many books that can make such a claim. Libro interessante e adatto anche a coloro che, con matematica e logica hanno poco a che fare!

I’ve had this on my “to read” list for years and finally got around to checking it out. It amuses me highly that the book came out of a compilation of filmstrips Gardner had done around various logic puzzles. The book is full of illustrations, which makes some of the explanations a lot easier to follow than they would be otherwise.

He groups the book into several sections and groups the paradoxes under headings such as “Number” and “Time. You can see a few sample pages on this Boing Boing link: Not to be overlooked by the casual reader who might not see themselves as the puzzling type, “Aha! Gotcha,” is that rare breed of puzzlebook that has universal appeal. It’s a book that focuses almost entirely on those special singularities in our minds where the standard logic of a situation breaks down to allow a loophole, a shortcut The book jumps lightly from puzzle stories, to light math, to trivia, and a wide variety of applications and puzzle types.

This buffet-style approac Not to be overlooked by the casual reader who might not see themselves as the puzzling type, “Aha! This buffet-style approach might dissappoint serious puzzlers like me! Each puzzle is drawn out using childish stick-figures to present a paradox or riddle, which is then explained and reviewed in prose on the following page. This book is just the sort of thing to keep your company occupied when they visit.

Puzzle books are a very difficult genre to review, because in many ways they are more like interactive games than sources of prose information.

Even coffee-table landscape eye candy tomes can be roughly compared to other non-fiction reading, but puzzle books more often can be passed off as merely glorified flashcards. And as we all know, flashcards can’t be reviewed, right?


This is the first “math” book that I bought for fun. I got it when Gradner was 10 or 11, and it’s as entertaining to me now as it was then. Cute drawings, clever humor, and all around fun. This is a great book for paradox fans of all ages, and it’s wonderful for beginners but still worthwhile to the seasoned puzzler.

If you want to read a book that has cool paradoxes and puzzles, this book has what you want. This book contains paradoxes, puzzles, explanations, and a miniature comic to go with each.

Some paradoxes are very common, while others are not so common. This gardndr is short, but full of interesting puzzles and paradoxes to think about. Many interesting problems, but for almost all of them a remainder is made to another book of the great Martin Gardner I remember reading its articles on Scientific American ; that sounds to me more than a “paid” advertisement; most grdner are just outlined.

¡Ajá! Paradojas que hacen pensar

Gardner at his best! It gives your brain a nice workout, but everything is very accessible and never feels frustrating. This book is much more than just a collection of puzzles to solve, it really makes you think about some fascinating ideas relating to paradoxes. Very thought-proking and dispells some common myths. Help spot trickery in advertizing and political assertions. A great intro to how to think about the world logically. I have to admit I didn’t get all of this even though it was clearly targeted at middle school readers.

At least the cartoons helped!
