|Interactive Mathematics Miscellany and Puzzles, Alexander Bogomolny|
|Essays on impossible things, including trisecting an angle, doubling a cube, squaring a circle, moving pegs five places in one direction (via checker-jumps), finding the center of a given circle with the straightedge alone, representing the square root of 2 as a rational fraction p/q, and creating a machine that would tell for every statement whether it's true or false. There are also a pair of items demonstrating surprisingly possible things!|
