Wow! I only have 3 books on the cube and one has a bunch of hilighting and writing in it. I look forward to the update. :)

(also, completely off-topic, but the title of this thread reminds me of xkcd #541)

No, there are no other English books like that.
I have several Russian and German books covering more puzzles than normally.
The puzzles are explained more in detail, but there are no such prodigal pictures like in the Slocum book.
See example below.

By the way, impressive collection. Surely the largest of its kind.

Do you happen to have the book "The Winning Solution" authored by Minh Thai? I'd look for it among your sizable collection, but your collection is sizable. :)

Due to camera angle not all books show up in the pictures.
I have both Minh Thai's books:

Georges, this post just reminded me that I have been meaning to ask whether you already have the Norwegian version of Cyril Østrup's book (I could not find it in your list of solution books). If not, I will be happy to scan it for you and keep an eye out for another copy. :wink:

(Sorry to everyone else, this should have been a private message, but my e-mail system is down at the moment and Georges has disabled his PM).

Josef Trajber: Der Würfel,
Josef Trajber: Der Würfel für Fortgeschrittene,
Josef Trajber: Rubik's Clock,
Tom Werneck: Der Zauberwürfel,
Tom Werneck: Der Zauberwürfel für Könner,

A bit off topic: there are three writte by Helm Georges...

@ Celia: Mr Bandelow had some samples of "Einführung in die Cubologie" left and sold me one during the DCD. I don't collect books but this one was mentioned by David Joyner as one of his main inspirations.

Yes, I noticed there are even more mentioned on the homepage. How come they're all in German, Georges? Did I miss something?

We know each other on this English forum, Celia.
German is the first language taught in school as from the age of six, French is taught one year later and English only as from the age of 12/14.
