Book review: How would you move Mount Fuji

This was another of the books I’ve managed to read during my last vacations. It’s an interesting book which presents several puzzles (supposedly) used by Microsoft during their hiring process. Besides presenting the answers to the puzzles, author William Poundstone adds a couple of “extra” chapters which try to “justify” the reasons associated with the use of this kind of puzzles by companies on their hiring process. Overall, I found it quite entertaining (though I must confess that I probably wouldn’t solve half of them under pressure) and I’m giving it 8/10.
