I'm still plugging away at it but it makes me remember the language of my Navy days.

After going back to the beginning I can only think of one adequate comment for the pool puzzles. That there is not enough profanity created yet to describe them.
nuff said.

I'll take the book with me to work and go through 2-3 with a pencil/pen and try again.

I'm stuck in chapter 4 and 5. I fear the book is way above what I should start with. I could only recommend it to someone with a heavy background in programming in other languages.

This puzzle has made me question my decision to buy the book. I understand the replies I could never come up with the solution. I have had a very limited programming background and that was ten years ago. So I suppose I do not meet the prerequisites. Is there a better book out there for folks not smart enough for the Head First books?

BTW, while I understand the replies, it took me four tries with the solution in hand to work it out on paper. This just seems to be too much difficulty this early in the book.
