Does Exactly What The Title Says
on 3 November 2016
This book more than lives up to its title. I first bought it 1981 as a teenager during the first wave of cube mania. Purchased again for nostalgia. The author was a 13 year old schoolboy at the time, who distributed his ideas amongst schoolmates. These were later picked up by Penguin books and this book was the result. The solution is presented in a simple step-by-step format which covers all situations and uses easy diagrams so the reader need not be worried about complex notation and formulas. The only disclaimer I can give is that this is very much a "beginner" solution. The reader interested in world class solution times and methods would be advised to look elsewhere. That said, the average reader using this solution could easily achieve an average solve time of about 2 minutes. It should also be noted that when this book was first published such things as the internet were still the stuff of science fiction and most people were desperate to find ANY way of solving this new-fangled infernal puzzle!
