This book is Don's final Volume in his CLSI Selected Papers (in computer science) series. It's a catch all for his papers (See vol. 1 for Selected CS papers) which didn't really quite fit into other the other volumes on algorithms, languages, etc.

Some papers where definitely worth reading, as usual. They combine fun and deep thoughts about maths or life.
However, I've disliked some papers I consider too heavy and NOT fun, even they look like puzzles or games.
