OK, so you are happy with life, feeling quite chilled and contented, loads of time for your family and friends. Buy this and you will be like me; obsessed, resentful of interruptions, staying up deep into the night, longing for the paper boy to deliver the next fix. Don't believe me? Then don't go there.

Format: Paperback
This is a great book of sudoku puzzles, over 130 of them. They are printed quite large (compared to the times puzzles), and you get more of them (there are only 100 in the Times books). Also, they get harder than the Times puzzles.
There is a good section at the beginning about how to solve the puzzles as well, with a full description of most of the methods used to solve the puzzles

Mepham (the author) seems to be the only man in the world who likes his Sudoku to need trial and error and it stinks. Sudoku is beautiful when it's pure logic. For goodness sake, there is enough crossing out required as it is, let alone having to simply guess a number and follow down to its wrong conclusion and then go back and start all over again. My advice would be to try Carol Vorderman's book with 200 puzzles (plus lots of tips) or Big Book of Sudoku with 200 puzzles but no tips or timings. Enjoy those instead.

I love Sudoku but I really hate these puzzles. The author likes 'trial and error' and composes the puzzles so that you have to try out one number (no brains required), work all the way through to nearly the end to realise that you simply tried the wrong number option. Pointless and illogical if you ask me. Stick to Wayne Gould or Carol Vorderman (really good if you want to improve your grade and time - 100 more puzzles for the same price too)

Format: Paperback
Any Sudoku puzzle with a unique solution can be solved by logic and deduction and that includes all the puzzles in this book. Therefore in response to some of the other reviews posted here, this book has NO trial and error!

This book also has one or two short and amusing features I've not found anywhere else, including the fascinating calculation to discover how many possible Sudoku puzzles there are!

If you only ever buy one Sudoku book, get this one.
