01
Did the Masons encode messages in walls—and even in the street plan of Washington, D.C.? Does the Hebrew Bible conceal hidden mysteries? Ingenious methods for encoding secrets have taken many amazing turns through the ages, from the military signals the Romans flashed from hilltop to hilltop, to the computer codes that guard your cash at the ATM. Pierre Berloquin, one of France’s leading puzzle book authors, takes you on a tour of them all in a book full of astonishing historical insights. With more than 150 brain-teasing problems for readers to solve for themselves, this is a journey beyond the gee-whiz and deep into the how-to of codes, ciphers, and other secret communication systems.

Puzzlers can have challenging fun every day of the year with 365 problem-solving exercises to test and sharpen their skills. Numbers, words, logic, concentration, creativity: they're all worked out. Puzzle icons at the top of each page explain exactly which ability is being tested and the difficulty level. Look at a diagram and figure out how many square and rectangles it would have if the diagonal lines were removed. Arrange a block of text alphabetically to find out what the 13 word would be. Complete a magic square so that it contains all the numbers from 1 to 25, and so that the sum of each line, column, and the two diagonals come to 65. These mental gymnastics will definitely keep the mind in top shape.
