BY

RAYMOND SMULLYAN

"The most entertaining logician and set theorist who ever lived."

-MARTIN GARDNER

"Raymond Smullyan has a gift for turning the most abstract and arcane topics in mathematics and logic into concrete and charming images ... May he write many more of his inimitable, lovely, lively mathematical adventures."

-DOUGLAS HOFSTADTER

"I believe him to be the Lewis Carroll of our times. His books of logic puzzles will be remembered long after most of us are forgotten."

-PETER DENNING

"Raymond Smullyan is a gifted magician. Even when crowded about by his friends and watched from every angle, he has invariably baffled us all. He is also an accomplished logician. A sudden deft turn and surprising conclusion in his logical writings sometimes remind us of his legerdemain."

-WILLARD QUINE,
New York Times Book Review

"Smullyan's imagination seemingly knows no limit ... His devilishly clever logic puzzles lead the reader from one level of complexity to the next ... with a charming style and verve that propel the reader onward."

-LEE DEMBART,
Los Angeles Times
