Description


In the tradition of Malcolm Gladwell and Dan Ariely, Rugg provides new tools to solve problems and crack codes. Within three weeks of working with nothing more than 3 x 5 cards and a penknife, Rugg cracks the code of the Voynich Manuscript, proving it is a forgery, and makes international news.
