SUDOKU Book Review
Su Doku FOR DUMMIES
Andrew Heron/Edmund James, 2005, Paperback,|
JOHN WILEY & SONS,ISBN 0-470-01892-5,
This book includes 240 puzzles, it's economic!
The cover of the book says
Andrew Heron is Su Doku expert and puzzle compiler
for national newspapers
and Edmund James is Su Doku expert.
So, I thought that Andrew must make excellent program
to make Sudoku problem automatically
and Edmund evaluated all the problems.
But problem quality is very poor. Why so poor?
There are too many exposed cells (usually 28).
This book is better than "Daily Mail Sudoku Book 1",
but it's not good enought to enjoy.
Problems are monotonous, using same techniques.

I found this book at a bookshop in Tokyo and bought it for evaluation.
I was quite shocked because its quality was too bad.
I couldn't imagine such a low level puzzle maker or program
exist in the world.
There are too many exposed cells (always 32), not synmetric.
I recommend you not to buy this sudoku book.
Is this SUDOKU? -- NO, Never!
