For a collection of the best puzzles from around the world throughout history, nothing beats this book. David Wells draws on sources such the medieval monk Alcuin, the 18th-century Ladies' Diary, the Bhakshali Hindu manuscript as well more familiar 19th-century authors like Lewis Carroll (Alice in Wonderland). These puzzles in logic and math range from the pretty easy to the quite challenging, from divided fields and magic squares to riddles and rhymes. But all you need is pencil and paper; no specialized knowledge in math or logic (or advanced degree) is required.
