Item description for The Nurikabe Book: An Introduction with 101 Puzzles by Sam Griffiths-Jones...

Puzzles are extremely popular at present, largely due to the world-wide phenomenon of Sudoku. Puzzle solving is a great activity for young and old alike - puzzles help children to develop their logical thought processes, help adults relax from the stresses and strains of daily life, and recent research shows that increased mental activity might help protect against degeneration in later life. This book introduces a puzzle called Nurikabe. Like Sudoku, Nurikabe has its roots in Japan, like Sudoku, Nurikabe involves a grid and numbers, and like Sudoku, Nurikabe is a test of logic - no mathematical ability is required. This book contains 101 Nurikabe puzzles, arranged in increasing order of difficulty, from tiny 6x6 puzzles to get you started, up to the final enormous 20x25 puzzle. The introduction contains a description of the rules of Nurikabe, and a few hints to get you started. Solutions to all puzzles are in the back of the book.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Nurikabe Book: An Introduction with 101 Puzzles?

Few options for Nurikabe books, but still stay away from this one.  Aug 6, 2007
Having recently found the latest puzzle craze called Nurikabe, I was ecstatic to find a book containing only this puzzle with varying levels of difficulty. I have been working all the puzzles online I could find, easily mastering the so-called difficult ones, so I jumped about 3/4 into the book the day I received it to some of the more difficult puzzles. I got pretty far into one particular puzzle, but then hit an unexpected roadblock. There was no way to logically solve the puzzle. I pondered this for quite awhile, since I figured there "just had to be a way" to solve it. But alas, there wasn't. I had to guess. I also eventually found out that several of the puzzles have multiple ways to solve them (yes, I am absolutely certain of this, checking, rechecking, triple-checking, and even quadruple-checking the puzzles and solutions). This in itself goes against the idea of Nurikabe, where the puzzles are supposed to be solvable by logic alone, and every puzzle only has one unique solution.

Bottom line, wait for a more competent creator of Nurikabe puzzles to publish a book, and continue to solve the various ones found online.
