This book has all sorts of new Kenken puzzles to work on, and is helpful for who have never tried it before. I like to keep it at work to do on my lunch break... it is entertaining and keeps you busy while also providing some thinking to keep your brain going.

This was my first attempt to do KenKen puzzles. I chose this book because it seemed to have the right number of puzzles at each level. I was right so far. Haven't gotten to the 6x6 boxes yet, but I think that after doing all the 4x4's I'll be ready.
