Publisher's Summary

Erno Rubik was a child when he first fell in love with puzzles of all kinds. 'Puzzles,' he writes, 'bring out important qualities in each of us: concentration, curiosity, a sense of play, the eagerness to discover a solution.' To Rubik, puzzles aren't just games; they're creativity machines - ones that have been around since the dawn of civilisation and proof that humans' capacity for curiosity is arguably limitless.

In Cubed Rubik covers more than just his journey to inventing his eponymous cube. He makes a case for always being an amateur (which he considers himself). He discusses the inevitability of problems during any act of invention. He reveals what it was like to experience the astonishing worldwide success of an object he made purely for his own amusement. And he offers what he thinks it means to be a true creator (hint: persistence). Steeped in the wisdom and also the humility of a born inventor, Cubed offers a unique look at the imperfect science of creation.
