Reviews - What do customers think about Total Sudoku?
Good beginner book for me! Apr 12, 2008
I enjoy using this book, paper is great, space is wonderful and the easy is not too easy! I do the puzzles everyday because it is a joy to work with!
Wonderfully big grids Apr 12, 2006
I love this one! Each puzzle is big, big, big -- one puzzle per 8 X 10 page. Lots of room to solve in. The quality of the paper is great. And there are 16 by 16 grids in the back -- my favorites. Buy this one, not the so-called "jumbo" puzzles by the same author.
Good format, but some puzzles not properly formed Mar 25, 2006
This Sudoku book is both great and a major disappointment at the same time. The great part is that the puzzles are printed nice and big so that you have enough space in the number squares to write down the possibilities. And the paper is strong enough so that you don't make holes in the paper as you write and erase. I had other Sudoku books where I ended up making a copy of each page before working on it.
The disappointment is that some puzzles are not properly formed, and have more than one solution.
Definitely choose Total Sudoku Jan 3, 2006
This is a fantastic book for sudoku starters everywhere. It has instructions that are really well written and a huge grid that is much easier to use and see than others. Another reviewer said that the levels are spread out, but that is so you can try different levels and work yourself up to levels. In a way it keeps you on a "roll." If you chose any sudoku book let this be the one.
Wonderful Way to Spend Your Time Nov 12, 2005
If you like to sit and think for a long time this is the product for you. I really enjoy this book.... the only thing is the order. It jumbles around from easy to hard to medium ect. I would also like it more if it had more solution strategies. Overall this is a good first book of sudoku.
