Inside Rubik’s Cube and Beyond
1 journaler for this copy...
I got this softcover from a friend who's downsizing. It's a look at the Rubik's Cube from a mathematical angle as well as from an entertainment viewpoint. I enjoyed the descriptions of the engineering of the physical cube, and the increasingly-complex algorithms - but there are also some light-hearted tidbits, such as the translation of cube sequences into a "musical lingo", such as "RINIRENEFENEFI". And there are cartoons showing some of the frustrations of the game, from someone preparing to apply paint to get the colors right to someone locking a completed cube away from anyone who dares to try and play with it.
