I have been enjoying working all of these sudoku puzzles. The puzzles are easy and you can get cross-eyed if you work these too long. I was in the hospital for a while and I worked these puzzles to forget the misery of being in a hospital. It as least made the time go by.
There are 300 puzzles and I do not work them in order. I skip around. I even cheat upon occassion.
All is fair when one is in the misery of a hospital. A luxury cruise liner it is not.
I am still working these because there a lot of them!

I am stil enjoying them.

I purchased several Will Shortz Sudoku books for my Grandkids when they were all into sudoku. Easy but stll challenging for 8, 9, and 12 year old children. These were purchased at the last minute for stocking stuffers last X-mas and Amazon Prime delivered them the next day. Don't know what I would do without Amazon Prime, well worth the cost! Thank you Amazon

This book is too big. Bigger than necessary. Keeping the puzzles exactly the same size (which is a nice size), the book could have been 3" shorter as there is a lot of blank space at the top and bottom of each puzzle. The paper is a newsprint kind of paper which is yucky to write on with a pencil and the numbers bleed through from the other side of the page, including your own writing. I should really give it fewer than 3 stars because of the cumbersome size and the poor quality of the paper. However, I do like the puzzles. It says "easy" but these are not super simple. Do not buy this book if you are looking for really really easy puzzles. You will be disappointed from the very first puzzle if you do. I like easy but not brainless... I like a bit of a challenge. These are perfect for me (as long as they don't get any harder... I've done about 6 so far)

I just hate to have to go to the answers if I get stuck so I have bought this book at least 3 times and will buy again. Sure, it is easier than most but I like just starting and ending a puzzle in less than 15 minutes and then go on to the next. I also don't have to erase a lot which is a plus. I do this for fun and not as a challenge so this book is right up my alley.

I love sudoku puzzles. You know, the EASY ones that I can actually complete all by myself without flipping to the back of the book and cheating to complete them. It's not just a good time waster when you're bored, but it's good for your brain. I read that doing sudoku puzzles may help you prevent having Alzheimer's down the road, so why not? A time killer. A possible mental disease preventer. What's not to like?

I enjoying Sudoku Puzzles despite being able to master complicated ones. This book is just right for me. I still get the satisfaction from successfully completing a puzzle without the frustration. They did however, sneak a few complicated puzzles in at the end of the book......

Got this book for my husband who is at the beginner level. He has been able to solve most of the puzzles so far, but has been beaten by a few. I was glad to see this book with mostly easy puzzles since the majority of books I have seen in stores have had easy, moderate and difficult levels all in one. It's a good size for travel or taking to appointments to kill waiting time.

I have to think too hard in real life to want to do so with my escapism. I got this after finishing the New York Post Easy Sudoku. It's not user-friendly. The paper quality isn't all that great. It's hard to write on with my mechanical pencil, and messy to erase. I did a couple puzzles, then donated it to Goodwill and ordered another copy of the New York Post book.
