New York magazine

“The latest craze in games”

“Sudoku is dangerous stuff. Forget work and family—think papers hurled across the room and industrial-sized blobs of correction fluid. I love it!”

The Times of London

“Sudokus are to the first decade of the 21st century what Rubik’s Cube was to the 1970s.”

– The Daily Telegraph

“Britain has a new addiction. Hunched over newspapers on crowded subway trains, sneaking secret peeks in the office, a puzzle-crazy nation is trying to slot numbers into small checkerboard grids.”

    Great way to end a day and feel like a WINNER!!!!!

    We purchased two of these - so we could "do" the same puzzle, at the same time. My "hubby" does these faster than I do, so I was not interested in a "competition." I must confess that I do at least one of these before I go to sleep each night. They are not difficult, but you do have to think; just not toooo hard. I find the successful completion of each puzzle helps to relax me, and I feel good about completing something just before going to sleep. The book provides some light stimulation, and allows a successful outcome - hence the WINNER comment

    easy Sudoku

    I purchased this book in the hopes of becoming proficient in this number game. I found it to be great in keeping my brain active. I chose the easy book and found it not to be so easy at times. I really enjoy this book and would recommend to others.

    Enough space to think

    What I like about Will Shortz's books is that the squares are large enough to put numbers while you eliminate. So many books have tiny squares.
