This text focuses on "Gauss problems," problems that if tackled in the traditional way, can be very tedious and time consuming, but if approached in a more insightful fashion, can yield the solution much more easily and elegantly. It presents an insightful combination of acquired techniques as opposed to the usual routine plodding through mathematical techniques. The book discusses the famous example of Gauss' summation of the first 100 natural numbers by grouping them rather than summing them one by one.
