The reader is thus taken on a journey through a maze of subsidiary problems that has all the earmarks of an entertaining detective story. This book leads the unwary reader into deep logical waters through seductively entertaining logic puzzles. One example is Boolean algebra with such weird looking equations as 1+1=0 - a subject which today plays a vital role, not only in mathematical systems, but also in computer science and artificial intelligence.
