Then, have you ever solved a Rubik's Cube?  Have you ever solved it in less than 30 seconds?  That little cube that was invented in Hungary in 1974, by a guy who put it together with wood blocks, rubber bands and paper clips. We speak with journalist and storyteller, Ian Sheffler, about his book, "Cracking the Cube."
