    Sudoku

    I bought this book for my goddaughter. I taught her how to do sudoku a couple of months ago and she has really taken to it. We even have challenges where we do the same puzzle and see who finishes first....and she now routinely smokes me! This is a great book, with easy, medium, and difficult puzzles plus a space to note how long it took you to solve each one. Highly recommended.

    It's fine

    My parents blow through these puzzles like crazy. It's nothing spectacular; just new puzzles.

    A reviewer

    I have done these puzzles and they are absolutely, hands down the best. It's like someone is teaching you the techniques one by one. If you don't figure out what you are supposed to learn on each level, the next level is harder. I am woking on the X-Treme Sudoku book now - the 4th in the series and will be looking for a new one soon. Hurry up Nikoli!!!! If you are looking to learn how to do the puzzles, these are your books.
