R. Smullyan, The Riddle of Sheherazade, and Other
Amazing Puzzles, Ancient & Modern, Knopf, NY.
ISBN 0-679-44634-6, 1997, List Price $22 US

The book consists of 225 fiendishly clever puzzles.
Many involve both logic and elementary mathematics.

Han Sah,

P.S. Some of the stories may not be politically correct because
they are told in the time frame of Scheherazade and what
is acceptable in one culture might not be acceptable in
another and vice versa. Nevertheless, one can easily
turn some of these into short lessons on *tolerance*.
