I love Sudoku. I went to Barns and Nobles and found about 25 different books and I went through them all, and picked this one because you get 400 puzzles that range from super easy to extremely hard. Also, there are different types of Sudoku puzzles that I didn't see in the other books that are really challenging. some puzzles use 9 letter words instead of numbers; some use shapes; one uses a fragmented LCD font and not only do u have to solve the Sudoku, but the extra challenge is thinking the number is something it isn't. There are also logi-place puzzles where instead of a cube it uses different shapes...much more challenging. There are also monster sudokus with 16 columns instead of the regular 9. There are also other types of Sudoku puzzles. So if you're getting tired of the regular 9 column ones or if you're up for a real challenge then you NEED to get this Sudoku book.

Sometimes I like a challenge and sometimes I want something simple. This book has it all. It's the best i have found so far. 11-7-05

Su Doku is a Japanese logic puzzle where rows, columns and regions must contain a certain number of digits only once. Su Doku has risen in popularity and an almost alarming rate and as such has been targeted by many variations. In a typical Su Doku puzzle, number digits appear only once in each row, column and region. These vary from the simple 4X4 grid to mammoth 16X16 monsters. But there are more variations awaiting the dedicated puzzler.

Although this book does not contain the variation dubbed Killer Su Doku, it contains many others as well as related puzzles.

The book begins with simple 4X4 puzzle grids and moves up through 6X6 and 9X9 to 16X16. Many of these puzzles will use letters from a word or symbols instead of the tradition numerals. Some even change the shape of the regions adding a new twist. We also have Samurai grids with five overlapping 6X6 grids. After that there are Slitherlink puzzles where you box in numbers following clues to how may sides are fenced in. Next there is Patchwork which works like Su Doku but has no region and uses a handful of clues relating specific boxes to one another like in a classic logic puzzle. As if that wasn't enough, there is also kakro which looks like a crossword puzzle but with clue showing what the rows and columns add up to. Finally there are the Super Su Doku that follow the standard 9X9 grid and are supposed to be tough.

All in all this is a fascinating book with good examples of standard Su Doku puzzles with some nice variations thrown in to keep things fresh and fun. An excellent all-around Su Doku puzzle book.

I gave this a 3 simply because you get a lot of puzzles for your money however, there are far too many puzzles that are way too easy. And I'm no expert - I can't even do the really hard ones yet and I thought there were too many super easy ones. I would have liked to see a few more of the 400 devoted to puzzles that your average solver might find fun to solve. Fun to challenging.

The puzzles are good but the book itself is extremely difficult to work with. The puzzles are small and the book is so thick that it is uncomfortable to work with. Far from my favorite Sudoku book.

I recently ordered this book as the 3rd I have owned. I love sudoku and finish them quickly, usually several each night while I watch TV for relaxation. I was disappointed in this book because I really wanted a book of 400 Sudoku puzzles and I got 400 sudoku variants of which only a small part are the traditional sudoku puzzles I love. I do not enjoy the letter puzzle or the symbol puzzles and already have another book devoted to kakuru so I really feel like this did not give me what I wanted.

This is a good sudoku book. It has the usual 9 x 9 sudoku grids, in levels of difficulty ranging from easy to hard. It has cool 12 x 12 grids that are very fun to do, as well as 16 x 16 grids which are a bit difficult. I really enjoyed the interlinking sudoku puzzles, the up and down section, the spiral puzzle section, and the math sudoku section that requires adding skills. The grid size is nice, but a touch smaller than you would see in your local newspaper. The paper quality could be better to make erasing wrong answers less of a pain. I would recommend this book over all of the other sudoku books on the market right now. I have a number of books, and this one is the best and most fun to do. However, if you would like to tote the book on the plane or train, this is not the one for you. It is the size of a guiness book of world records, and inconvenient to do anywhere but at home. But the puzzles are better. So it's a trade off. If you buy only one sudoku book, buy this one.

This is a very fun book. It starts off way too easy, but I guess that is good for beginers. The puzzles get harder as you go along. A must have for any Sudoku lover!

Firstly, be aware that there are a variety of sukoku puzzles in this book, not just the numeric puzzles most of us are used to. My complaint is that the puzzle grids are too small. As you get to challenging puzzles and want to scribble notes within the grid, there's no room.
