This CD is quite remarkable in many respects, and one of them is that nowadays it is the most compact (in every senses) compendium in the field of the recreational mathematics. Even more than that, it is the entire collection of Martin Gardner's Mathematical Games columns run in Scientific American for the quarter of century, from 1957 to 1982.

The CD contains the following books:
1. Hexaflexagons and Other Mathematical Diversions.
2. The Second Scientific American Book of Mathematical Puzzles and Diversions.
3. New Mathematical Diversions.
4. The Unexpected Hanging and Other Mathematical Diversions.
5. Martin Gardner's 6th Book of Mathematical Diversions from Scientific American.
6. Mathematical Carnival.
7. Mathematical Magic Show.
8. Mathematical Circus.
9. The Magic Numbers of Dr. Matrix.
10. Wheels, Life, and Other Mathematical Amusements.
11. Knotted Doughnuts and Other Mathematical Entertainments.
12. Time Travel and Other Mathematical Bewilderments.
13. Penrose Tiles to Trapdoor Ciphers... And the Return of Dr. Matrix.
14. Fractal Music, Hypercards, and more Mathematical Recreations from Scientific American Magazine.
15. The Last Recreations: Hydras, Eggs, and Other Mathematical Mystifications.

All these books are easy searchable using any keywords you need. Also, the CD is accompanied with two essays on Martin Gardner's life and work, one by Peter Renz, and another, by Don Albers. The latter essay includes a long and very interesting interview with Martin Gardner. And even more, the CD box contains a small booklet featuring brief versions of those essays.
