Labyrinths of Reason: Paradox, Puzzles, and the Frailty of Knowledge

William Poundstone, Author Anchor Books $19 (288p) ISBN 978-0-385-24271-4
``In a dazzling tour de force, Poundstone leads us through a series of paradoxes that move from Sherlock Holmes's puzzles to time travel, from dismembered brains in vats to multiple worlds, from the libraries of Atlantis to black holes. Eminently accessible, this delightful rapid-fire entertainment will appeal to readers of Douglas Hofstadter's G odel, Escher, Bach ,'' remarked PW . Illustrated. (Jan.)
