The Chicken from Minsk really gives your brain a workout...

As a survivor of the course based on this book and taught by Yuri himself at MIT, I must say that The Chicken from Minsk was a true challenge. The great thing about it is that it builds critical thinking skills while making even the nastiest math and physics (shall I dare say?) fun!

Ever so much fun for the curious of all ages...

The former Soviet Union had a much more mathematically rigerous tradition in physics than did the rest of the world. These problems are word problems, and they will make you sweat. Ideal for the curious of all ages, but especially for teens, to keep their curiosity alive. I think highly of this book-gave 7 copies away this holliday season.
