Synopsis  A book of puzzles, a lot of the Aalwayslies, Balwaystellsthetruth variety. Each section introduces the topic under discussion with a story, with small vignettes strewn between the puzzles themselves to give context. The last chapter is a more freeflowing storytelling chapter, with a complete explanation of Gödel's Incompleteness Theorem. 
Review  There's not all that much to say about this book. I found it an interesting read, and it's fun to try the puzzles out on friends. Go buy it if you like these kinds of books.
