Publisher's Summary

The first audiobook by the reclusive inventor of the world's most iconic puzzle, the Rubik's Cube. Erno Rubik inspires us with what he's learned in a lifetime of creating, curiosity, and discovery.

Erno Rubik was a child when he first became obsessed with puzzles of all kinds. "Puzzles", he writes, "bring out important qualities in each of us: concentration, curiosity, a sense of play, the eagerness to discover a solution." To Rubik, puzzles aren't just games - they're creativity machines. He encourages us to embrace our inner curiosity and find the puzzles that surround us in our everyday lives. "If you are determined, you will solve them", he writes. Rubik's own puzzle, the Cube, has been solved by millions worldwide for over 40 years, becoming one of the best-selling toys of all time, and a global symbol of intelligence and ingenuity. 

In Cubed, Rubik covers more than just his journey to inventing his eponymous cube. He makes a case for always being an amateur - something he has always considered himself to be. He discusses the inevitability of problems during any act of invention. He reveals what it was like to experience the astonishing worldwide success of an object he made purely for his own play. And he offers what he thinks it means to be a true creator (hint: anyone can do it). Steeped in the wisdom and also the humility of a born inventor, Cubed offers a unique look at the imperfect science of creation.
