These puzzles are very interesting but not for anyone pressed for time. I have become kind of bored/jaded with Sudoku and these Ken-Ken puzzles are a step above. I've done about 180 of them in the book and I will be sorry when I finish. I hope I can find more of this degree of difficulty. Every one CAN BE SOLVED with logic alone. None of this Sudoku solution method of make a guess and see if it works. Just spend enough time thinking about it and things fall into place.

This collection includes Ken-Ken puzzles from 6 to 9 cells in width/height. I find other collections too easy. I keep buying this one over and over because I run through the book. Recommended.
