The Japanese number system can be quite complex, especially when you .

The Japanese number system can be quite complex, especially when you first start learning. While basic counting in Japanese is easy, there are several ways to coun. ven just to 10. And counting objects can become confusing because of a dreaded thing called counters. Although 本 means book in Japanese, it isn’t the counter for books (that’s ~冊, satsu, which is the counter for bound objects, like manga). 本 is also the counter for things like roads, rivers, and train tracks – anything that travels that is very long and thin. It’s also used for long-distance telephone calls and travel routes.

In Japan, where the written language is highly complex and context-dependent, number puzzles are the people's puzzle of choice. Many of the puzzles in this book are unheard of in the U.S., but are established, proven classics in Japan. This challenging collection contains more than 350 logic, sequence and mathematical puzzles, including well-known favorites (Sudoku, Kakuro), many new puzzle types (Battleships, Number Position, Nonogram), or variations on known themes (Killer Sudoku, Latin Squares).

I recently received this puzzle book as a gift from my daughter, who knows my love of Sudoku and other types of logic puzzles. Since it contains 360 puzzles of varying degrees of difficulty, it will take me a while to complete them all. Nevertheless, I feel confident enough of the quality to give it a five star rating based on my experiences to date in solving the puzzles.

The book contains 15 types of puzzles (24 of each), several of which are Sudoku variants but many are unique logic puzzle types that I have not encountered previously. They are 1) Sudoku, 2) Shape Sudoku, 3) Killer Sudoku, 4) Greater Than Sudoku (very clever, your only clue is whether the number on each side of the square is greater than or less than the square which you are trying to complete), 5) Samurai Sudoku (five interlocking Sudoku puzzles which cannot be solved independently of each other, one of my favorite types), 6) Kakuro, 7) Zig-Zag, 8) Number Position (I'm already hooked on these), 9) Nonogram, 10) Minesweeper, 11) Latin Squares, 12) Number Link, 13) Arithmetic Squares, 14) Piecework, and 15) Towers. A few of the games with which I am familiar (such as Nonograms) also have alternative names in other publications. The great majority of the puzzles are number puzzles, but for the most part only in the sense that they involve the use of numbers as part of the logical process of analysis involved in their solution. Some such as Kakuro and Arithmetic Squares do involve basic arithmetical skills, but none involve higher math in any sense. Rather what unites all these puzzles is the need for the systematic application of logic to find their solutions. Many of those with which I was not familiar are both a lot of fun quite clever and often fairly difficult - I include in this category Number Position, Piecework and Towers. But of course, the attraction of such games is by nature intrinsically very personal, and I am sure every fan will have a different list of favorites - but one of the things that makes the book so enjoyable is the myriad of puzzle types. Thus, whatever a puzzler's mood, desire to be challenged and time available (short subway ride vs. long plane flight or airport delay), there will be a suitable puzzle here.

My only two disappointments were that in a few cases the explanations, hints, and examples of solutions (given at the beginning of the section for each type of puzzle) seemed a little convoluted; in a least one instance for a puzzle type with which I was unfamiliar the example used as an illustration contained an error (luckily obvious). Also, for at least one puzzle used as an example, there was not a unique solution, so I spent some unnecessary time analyzing why I did not agree with the indicated solution until I realized multiple solutions were possible. If I discover this flaw occurs with enough frequency to become annoying as I complete more puzzles, I will delete my five star rating - but at this point as a great fan of logic puzzles I am very impressed and quite delighted with the variety and quality of these puzzles despite these two minor complaints.

In summary, this book is highly recommended for fans of logic puzzles looking for a large collection of new challenges, including some types which are unique to this book. However, I would recommend that unless you are an exceptional puzzle solver (the kind who takes pleasure in completing the Sunday New York Times crossword puzzle in ink), that it will save you a lot of aggravation if you copy this puzzlers on any copier and also blow up their size somewhat if you can. I have found that this technique saves me from a lot of frustration and aggravation when solving the difficult puzzles, since it means that the original one remains blank in my book and if I make a error I can just go back and start over. This is especially true for the difficult puzzles of certain types (e.g. nonograms), where your mistakes can not be evident until you are almost done and correcting them is very difficult if most of the squares are already completed. In addition, this way multiple family members can each attempt their favorite puzzle types independently.

I am a huge fan of Japanese number puzzles beyond Sudoku. I have bought Japanese puzzle books from overseas and subscribed to a UK magazine (from the US) just to get similar style puzzles. I have bought several bound books of non-Sudoku Japanese puzzles, and this has been by far the best! The breadth of puzzles is impressive. I am sad that there's only one review and was moved to endorse it. There is a tremendous amount of bang for your buck here. When I finished a puzzle section I was frustrated because I knew there would be no more to come. Luckily these days there are more and more books out of Japanese puzzles. But this remains the best I've seen. I think the how to solve sections are superb. I have torn one or two puzzles out of the book to take with me as they are top rate entertainment. I thoroughly recommend this book!
