This is one of the FEW Sudoku books that is truly enjoyable (most others are either too easy or contains errors or require brute force searches to finish).
The print is relative large with enough space for writing in markings. My only complain is the quality of the paper; it is like newspaper so can easily tear if one needs to erase a mark.
The difficulty level varies as well, which is nice. If you only have a coffee break to work a puzzle on, try an easier one. If you have a long plane ride, try a tougher one. All-in-all, an excellent sudoku book.
The positive aspects of this Sudoku book is the large format and for six bucks there are over 200 puzzles. Also, the advanced puzzles are very challenging, more so than other Sudoku books.
I was struggling for HOURS with advanced puzzle number 61, located on page 208. I finally looked at the answer page, only to find out that the book has a mistake! The puzzle gives you a 1 and 9 in the middle row of the center of the puzzle (Columns 4 and 6, Row 5). The answer key shows the 1 and 9 in row 6!! Whoops . . . .
Unless you feel like checking every puzzle for mistakes, I would recommend buying another Sudoku book.

This isn't the creme de la creme of sudoku, but for your non-world-champion-class player, these puzzles are diverse and fairly artful. Read morePublished on February 17, 2014 by Sarah Prostar
The puzzles in this book are great. The boxes are large enough that you can put multiple numbers in a box if you like.
The ratings, however, are very inconsistent. Read more
This is a well-made paperback book. It has easy, intermediate, and advanced puzzles. I found the advanced ones not to be so difficult that it took the pleasure out of the game. Read morePublished on September 5, 2007 by Addicted Reader
