The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde is probably my all-time favourite. Unfortunately he only ever wrote the one novel.

If you don't mind, tell me about the Poundstone book. I have been a fan of his since reading Big Secrets back in junior high.

Thanks!

Shalom, y'all!

How Would You Move Fuji? is a very interesting book about the new trend of tech and business-related job interviews: brainteasers and puzzles. In the book, Poundstone explores the origins of this sort of interview, the logic behind them, and best of all, the book is filled with puzzles and elaborate answers at the back! I haven't gone through every single puzzle, but I finished most of the book in two days, it's that entertaining. Also, I suppose it'll be a good interview prep book if you're going for an interview at Microsoft!

Thanks! He has always been curious concerning puzzles and logic, and he writes extremely clearly and well about the subjects, so I bet it is a terrific read. I will have to check it out!

Again, thanks!

Shalom, y'all!
