    As titled


    I am mostly looking for logic puzzles that doesn't require too much indepth mathematics, but rather creative thinking to get to the solution



    example of problems I am looking for:

    the chessboard corners removed problem


    is it possible to use fewer than 6 cuts to get to 3x3x3 rubiks cube problem


    any suggestions?

    I don't have the book myself, but from reading the reviews on Amazon, Aha! Insight by Martin Gardner may be what you're looking for.
