    1. Una mia regola aurea sulla qualità dei libri da leggere è "se sono in carta patinata, lascia perdere". Diciamo che sono più attento al contenuto che alla forma del contenitore; la regola chiaramente non si applica ai libri d'arte o di fotografia dove c'è la necessità di una carta di migliore qualità per vedere le immagini, ma per l'appunto queste sono le eccezioni e non la regola. In questo caso la regola è stata regolarmente rispettata. Bisogna dare atto a Stangroom di avere creato delle [...]

    2. Just making a point of mentioning here how much swag Einstein had even as a kid.What you see is what you get really. I like riddles and paradoxes and conundrums, so I liked this book. I really enjoyed trying to work them all out and in terms of format it's pretty easy enough to read and understand (the Liar's Paradox has always been especially interesting to me and the 'solution' so to speak was nicely explained). A word of advice would be to always keep a pen and paper with you when reading thi [...]

    3. I verily believe that Einstein's Riddle is a great book. The writing in it is very insightful and "will stretch your mind". The strengths of this book are how the book utilizes so many truly thought provoking questions and the variety of these questions. Among these stupendous questions, one stand out above the rest, Einstein's Riddle. The only problem that I find in this book is that the answers to the questions in the back of the book are not written in much detail. Some questions only need a [...]

    4. There were some fun brainteasers in this book, but many of the questions require statistics and probability instead of good, old-fashioned logic. My favorite puzzle was Einstein's Riddle, which requires you to make a grid and fill in the answers based on clues. (I'm happy to say I arrived at the correct answer.) I had heard of several of the riddles before -- some are as old as philosophy -- but it was still fun to revisit them. I plan to share this book with my mom, who was a math professor, an [...]

    5. Relentless, and mind boggling, infuriating, yet intriguing, this book has more than its fair share of slaps to the face of your intelligence. I say that with a grain of salt however, because there were also a multitude of conundrums that were "No-win situations". By this, I mean that no matter how hard you thought on something and came to a certain conclusion, one that you had previously gone over in your head was really the right one, even if using logic it was proven false. The prior statement [...]

    6. Not as fun or insightful as I hoped. Discussion of the puzzles are much more of the "a greek philosopher first discussed this imagined logical conundrum" blah blah description than I wanted -- cross MadLibs with a sudoku puzzle book with a dry "history of the ancient greeks" text and a short magazine article about the "Monty Hall" problem and you'll get this book.

    7. Einstein'ın çocukken hazırladığı paradoksu bile çözmek bir günümü aldı yanlış sonuca vardım, ama kesinlikle bir grup ile oturulup üstünde tartışıp güzel vakit geçirebileceğiniz, sinir bozucu (ama çözdüğünüzde bir o kadar rahatlatıcı) bir eser.

    8. I love this book of riddles/puzzles. They are very challenging and take dedication and time to complete. I think this would be a great gift for someone who likes puzzles. Also, I did them alone but I thought it would have been more exciting to work with a friend.

    9. This book was a lot of fun. I read several of the riddles/conundrums/paradoxes a day and was sufficiently entertained. I think my favorite part of the book was the explanations of the history behind the paradoxes and such. Fun read!

    10. Spent two days working on the first puzzle. Damn, these were tough. If you like logic puzzles that lean heavily towards needing to use equations to solve this is the book for you.

    11. 3.5/5Je ne sais pas si c'est vrai que seulement 2% de la population réussise l'énigme de Einstein, mais en tout cas j'ai trouvé la réponse. :-)

    12. This was a good book of mind bending riddles and paradoxes. I'd be lying if I said that I understood all of them, however, I did enjoy trying to puzzle through them.

    13. Begins with the classic 5 house Einstein riddleIf you enjoy logic puzzles it is worth trying and can be found on the internet.

    14. Kaikille suositeltavaa aivojumppaa! Itse jäin kaipaamaan enemmän nimikkotehtävän Einsteinin arvoituksen kaltaisia päättelytehtäviä.

    15. An engaging collection of riddles, some of which I'd seen before, with clear explanations/answers for each at the end. I'm still working on Einstein's riddle - a logic problem.
