ALAN TURING CODEBREAKER'S PUZZLE BOOK

DR GARETH MOORE    Book Number: 87602    Product format: Paperback

The puzzles in this book are different from those you will typically come across elsewhere because part of the challenge is to work out the rules of each puzzle for yourself. Each has a number and title and is cross-referenced with hint and solutions, but the title can be important. Alan Turing is known as the father of modern computing, but more importantly he was part of the top-secret codebreaking team based at Bletchley Park during WWII, and played a vital role in cracking the Enigma Code. This collection supports the work undertaken by The Turing Trust. There are five chapters graded in difficulty - Decipherable, Computable, Testing, Encrypted and Enigmatic. Take a Letter: In each case a single letter can be removed, and the remaining letters then rearranged to make a second word of a similar meaning. For example PILFER minus P = RIFLE. Key numbers, literary sets, connections, Venn diagrams, cryptic movie clubs, music mix, jigsaws, codebreaking, there must be over 100 tricky conundrums in this cornucopia. 256pp, softback.
