You Can do The Cube
Sold 1.5 million copies world-wide in 17 editions, ranked as number 1 on the London Times and New York Times bestseller lists for the entire Year 1981.
Patrick (shown right) wrote the book based on his own solution to the Rubik's Cube at the age of 12. It was published in 1981, and became the fastest selling book in history since the publication of Lady Chatterley's Lover. It has since only been out-sold by J.K.Rowling's Harry Potter series. An award winning video, You too Can do The Cube, for EMI followed.
