MEDIA REVIEWS

"In the spirit of George Polya's classic treatise How to Solve It: A New Aspect of Mathematical Method, this book is Vasile Berinde's attempt to "algorithmetize" the creative process involved in problem-solving.... The author's stated goals are twofold. The most obvious aim is to provide methods for solving some difficult problems. But on a deeper level, he is trying to grow new research mathematicians by planting the seeds that will develop into the skills they will need to do original research.... Each of the 24 chapters begins with a source or starting problem and its solution. Then the fun begins! Remarks about the "essence" of the problem and its solution suggest new directions to explore, and these investigations lead to generalizations and the formulation of related problems, sometimes building a "factory" of new problems.

From the first page I eagerly grabbed my pencil and a stack of scratch paper, and set to work as I happily read along.... I recommend the book for all lovers of mathematics, but especially students and teachers who participate in mathematics contests and practice problem solving."
