This is described in terms which sound appealing: "Do you have what it takes to solve the most perplexing puzzles?" reads the blurb.
However, the puzzles in question are largely concerned with being able to read an ordinance survay map, and repetitive to the point of boredom.
I bought this as a Christmas gift for an intelligent friend with a love of history; now I've looked at it, I'd be embarrassed to give it, for fear of the unspoken message it would send. I'm sure there's a target demographic for this book, but the person I bought it for doesn't wear an anorak.
