Logic Problem Solution:
This Week on Oprah-Rickie
Iona was on "Talk A. M." the day before Ms. Abbott appeared on the
program (clue 7), so in clue 8, Iona isn't the author of Women
Are From Around Here ... . Iona also isn't Ms. Davis (2), so she
isn't one of the three in clue 8. Ms. Abbott isn't the author of
Women Are From Around Here ... (3), so she also isn't one of
the three in clue 8. In clue 8, then, Mitch must be the author of
Women Are From Around Here ... . Since Iona and Ms. Abbott
were interviewed by Oprah-Rickie on consecutive days (7) and the
three authors in clue 8 were interviewed on consecutive days, either
Iona or Mitch was Monday's guest--by clue 4, Iona. So, Iona was on
"Talk A. M." on Monday, Ms. Abbott on Tuesday (7), Mitch (talking
about Women ... on Wednesday, Jeffrey on Thursday, and Ms.
Davis on Friday. Since there are three women (Iona, Ms. Abbott, and
Ms. Davis) and two men, and since Jeffrey isn't the author of The
Incredible Breathing Brain (6), in clue 1 Jeffrey must be Mr.
Bergman and Ms. Davis then the author of Brain. By clue 5,
Iona is author of I'm So-So ... and Ms. Abbott of
Attitude ... . By elimination, Jeffrey Berger was on Oprah-
Rickie plugging Beef Broth ... . By clue 9, Kandi is Abbott
and Iona Ellison. Finally, then, Linda is Davis and Mitch Cassini.
The five self-help authors appeared on "Oprah-Rickie Jones-Raphael
Talk A. M." in order
- Monday - Iona Ellison, I'm So-So and So Are You
- Tuesday - Kandi Abbott, Attitude Is a Lot of It
- Wednesday - Mitch Cassini, Women Are From Around Here, Men
Are From Out There Somewhere
- Thursday - Jeffrey Berger, Beef Broth For Your Psyche
- Friday - Linda Davis, The Incredible Breathing Brain
