ACKNOWLEDGMENTS I'd like to thank Philip Carter for kindly coming to my aid and rescuing both me and the manuscript. Without his generous help the project would surely have foundered. I'd also like to thank my mum, Mardi, my sister, Hannah, the rest of my family and all my friends for their support and encouragement. I'd like to thank Scot Morris for his helpful suggestions; Cassell PLC for permission to repub- lish several puzzles; and The Sunday Times, specifically, for permission to republish the brainteasers "Code" (Number 11) and "Number Crunching" (Number 29), both of which first appeared in The Sunday Times magazine, London.

PREFACE The puzzles in this book have been designed to be both amusing and challenging. At first glance you may find that some look a bit daunting, _but, rest assured, you do not need any specialist knowledge to solve them. If you approach them in the right way, using lateral thinking and by being open to new, creative solutions, you will find that you come up with many, if not all, of the correct answers. It may be a relief to you to know that most have the kind of answers that just ')ump out" at you, so no laborious calculations are necessary. Often a typical. reaction on finding out an answer to such a problem is to smile and say, "Of course!", while wondering why on earth you didn't think. of such a "simple" answer in the first place. I hope you have a lot of fun solving the puzzles, and perhaps you will be inspired to try to create a few of your own. Lloyd King 5
