Induction and Analogy in Mathematics (Mathematics and Plausible Reasoning #1)
by George Pólya
Here the author of "How to Solve It" explains how to become a "good guesser." Marked by G. Polya's simple, energetic prose and use of clever examples from a wide range of human activities, this two-volume work explores techniques of guessing, inductive reasoning, and reasoning by analogy, and the role they play in the most rigorous of deductive disciplines.
