This new puzzle book offers 'The Best of Two Worlds' to puzzle fans - 200 Sudoku as well as 200 Kakuro mindbenders. Puzzle master Alastair Chisholm separates both types into four categories - Delicious, Pernicious, Malicious, and Vicious (answers to all the puzzles are included at the back of the book).

Chisholm offers a brief introduction to the Sudoku section, explaining the logic, and a much longer one to the Kakuro number crosswords, which he calls 'The Next Challenge!' He explains objectives and strategies, and offers a handy table of Kakuro Blocks to reference (until they're memorized and no longer needed).

I admit to being a Sudoku addict who's just started to enjoy Kakuro. My teen son is way ahead of me and fast becoming a Kakuro expert, so I expect we will enjoy these challenges together in idle summer moments.
