Title  100 Geometric games 
Author(s)  Pierre Berloquin;Denis Dugas (ill) 
Publication  Mineola, Dover Publications, Inc., 1976. 
Description  viii, 146p. 
Abstract Note  There are three loops in a tangle of rope. How many are independent, and how many are interlocked? Two knights stand on a chessboard. How many other knights must you add so that each square is occupied or threatened by a knight?
Among six seemingly identical drawings of mandalas, each rotated by multiples of 60 degrees, one is different. Which is it, and why?
Challenge yourself with these mindbenders, brainteasers, and puzzles. Each of them has been carefully selected so that none will be too tough for anyone without a math background but they're not too easy. Some are original, and all are clearly and accurately answered at the back of the book.

Title  Entertaining mathematical puzzles 
Author(s)  Martin Gardner 
Publication  New York, Dover Publications, Inc., 1961. 
Description  xii, 112p. 
Abstract Note  , Entertaining Mathematical Puzzles is a mixture of old and new riddles, grouped into sections that cover a variety of mathematical topics: money, speed, plane and solid geometry, probability, topology, tricky puzzles, and more. The probability section, for example, points out that everything we do, everything that happens around us, obeys the laws of probability; geometry puzzles test our ability to think pictorially and often, in more than one dimension; while topology, among the "youngest and rowdiest branches of modern geometry," offers a glimpse into a strange dimension where properties remain unchanged, no matter how a figure is twisted, stretched, or compressed. Clear and concise comments at the beginning of each section explain the nature and importance of the math needed to solve each puzzle. A carefully explained solution follows each problem.

Title  Mathematics magic and mystery 
Author(s)  Martin Gardner 
Publication  New York, Dover Publications, Inc., 1956. 
Description  xii, 176p. 
Abstract Note  Why do card tricks work? How can magicians do astonishing feats of mathematics mentally? Why do stage "mindreading" tricks work? As a rule, we simply accept these tricks and "magic" without recognizing that they are really demonstrations of strict laws based on probability, sets, number theory, topology, and other branches of mathematics.
This is the first booklength study of this fascinating branch of recreational mathematics. Written by one of the foremost experts on mathematical magic, it employs considerable historical data to summarize all previous work in this field. It is also a creative examination of laws and their exemplification, with scores of new tricks, insights, and demonstrations. Dozens of topological tricks are explained, and dozens of manipulation tricks are aligned with mathematical law.

Title  Alex's adventures in numberland: Dispatches From the Wonderful World of Mathematics 
Author(s)  Alex Bellos 
Publication  London, Bloomsbury, 2010. 
Description  448p. 
Abstract Note  The world of maths can seem mindboggling, irrelevant and, let's face it, boring. This groundbreaking book reclaims maths from the geeks. Mathematical ideas underpin just about everything in our lives: from the surprising geometry of the 50p piece to how probability can help you win in any casino. In search of weird and wonderful mathematical phenomena, Alex Bellos travels across the globe and meets the world's fastest mental calculators in Germany and a startlingly numerate chimpanzee in Japan. Packed with fascinating, eyeopening anecdotes, Alex's Adventures in Numberland is an exhilarating cocktail of history, reportage and mathematical proofs that will leave you awestruck.
