Obviously that wasn't true, since someone had made some for the book, including one of the book's title itself. I thought, "Well, maybe they're at least really difficult." So, to see for myself, I decided to try making an ambigram of my own name. It took me a day or two, but I finally managed it. I was inordinately proud of myself. I'm not sure where my ambigram is now. Might be in one of my scrapbooks, since this was during a rare visit to see my aunt. I should look for it.

Edit: Oh… Just noticed that Dan Brown did the foreword of that _Wordplay_ book. That seems like a pretty questionable choice on John's part, since Dan Brown's treatment of ambigrams in _Angels & Demons_ is completely unrealistic; and Dan Brown, if his books are anything to go by, doesn't know anything about anything, and might be a perfect case study of the Dunning-Kruger effect.
