Ross Honsberger has done it again. He has brought together another wonderful collection of elementary mathematical problems and their solutions abounding in striking surprises and brilliant ideas that reflect the beauty of mathematics. Many of these problems come from mathematical journals. Others come from various mathematical competitions such as the Tournament of the Towns, the Balkan Olympiad, the American Invitational Mathematics Exam, and the Putnam exam. And, of course, there is a problem suggested by Paul Erdös. This book is ideal for students, teachers and anyone interested in recreational mathematics.
