The Lady or the Tiger?

Raymond Smullyan introduces the readers to simple logic problems and then starts to grow them more complex. Answers to the puzzles are provided with explaination, but Smullyan's more recent books clearly dig deeper. However, if you want some good knight/knave and dracula puzzles, this is a good place to start to learn about Godel. I recommend also obtaining: "Lady or the Tiger? And Other Logic Puzzles Including a Mathematical Novel That Features Godel's Great Discovery"
