"A book about puzzles and problem solving, entertainingly disguised as the fictional tale of Dr. Jacob Ecco. We first meet Dr. Ecco at home in Greenwich Village, New York, where he is visited by his diverse clientele: government leaders and shadowy double agents, corporate giants and eccentric millionaires. Each client presents Dr. Ecco with an intriguing puzzle and is willing to pay handsomely for its solution. And so Dr. Ecco earns his living. Nearly 40 well-known combinatorial puzzles are posed in this lively and exciting narratie, each one beginning a new episode in Dr. Ecco's enigmatic life. The real fun is that we are asked to try and solve each puzzle as it is introduced in the story."
