The Japanese logic puzzle is one of the most addictive products known to man, says Alex Bellos, and there is a community of creators in Tokyo who write their puzzles by hand with a view to aesthetic as well as mathematical beauty. Having made a pilgrimage to meet the puzzle masters behind these habit forming brainteasers, Bellos returned with this collection of 200 puzzles that will flex, stretch, and possibly blow your mind. It includes examples of more than 20 new types, including Shakashaka, Ren-Katsu, and Marupeke (but no Sudoku).
