Overview

Sudoku Stories: History, Art and Science in 101 Designer Puzzles by Oscar Seurat, Olivier Nicolas

Whether you just wanted to start your Sudoku adventure or add magic to a long-established habit, this book is intended for you. You will find here 101 specially designed puzzles accompanied by mini-essays on a wide variety of entertaining topics. The distinctive puzzles serve as illustrations to the popular articles and, in return, the articles give life back to the objects depicted in the puzzles.

Did you know, for example, that Archimedes, unhappy with Apollonius of Perga finding a better approximation to than his 22/7, threw down the mathematical gauntlet in the form of the formidable "Cattle Problem"? And that to ensure that no one, Apollonius included, could solve the riddle, Archimedes so devised the problem that its smallest solution had 206,545 digits?

Sudoku Stories will provide you with a unique puzzle-solving experience in the company of James Bond, Harry Houdini, Sherlock Holmes, space explorers, Spanish Conquistadores, lightning bugs and electrical plugs and the rest of the 101 characters, animals and objects of note.
