    Martin Gardner was a mathematician, a magician and a tireless crusader against pseudoscience He used to write a regular column Mathematical Games in The Scientific American These series of books are a collection of those.These are not only puzzles and games through this medium, Gardner introduces us to the profound questions in mathematics and philosophy He makes learning fun.Recommended if you have a mathematical turn of mind.
