Not as many of interest to me in this one. I programmed Life in BASIC back in 1977, and moved on after the curiosity wore off - plus I had my fill with Wolfram in his tome. And...we ran through NIM stuff around the same time, so less interested now. Chess problems...cool. Geometry. Cards. Lots of puzzles... And no matter how much I read of his, I can never fathom the resources he had. Obscure texts, mainstream journals...in a pre-Internet ubiquitously available age. Amazing. ( )

This was hands-down my favorite book in high school! Puzzles, games, and all kinds of mathematical fun. ( )
