Martin Gardner was literally one of the most intelligent people to have ever lived. A prolific author, his subjects ran the gamut of science, mathematics, philosophy, magic, fiction, amongst other things, all written in an erudite, yet easy to understand style. He lived to be 95 years old and during that time his tireless interest in all things never waned.He wrote a number of exceptional magic books and columns, including Martin Gardner Presents, Mathematics, Magic, and Mystery, and The Encyclopedia of Impromptu Magic. The latter being one of the most fascinating books ever. You can almost without fail look up any object that happens to be in your midst and find a feat of magic that you can do with it.Definitely check out The Whys of a Philosophical Scrivener for a fascinating read and a look at some of Mr. Gardner’s philosophical thinking, as well as the extraordinary The Annotated Alice.
