Feynman Lectures On Computation - Robin W. Allen, J.G. Hey, Anthony Hey, David Pines, Richard P. Feynman

Feynman deliberately poses some proofs of results as "problems for the reader." Early on he states his pedagogical reasons for this, giving an insight into how he worked on problems of his own. Those reasons are pretty sound but I think he should have additionally provided solutions to the problems that are also important basic results, or not set these as problems.
