Difficult, challenging, hard to complete, a lot of fun for those looking for hard-to-work Sudoku puzzles this series is the ONLY book to hae truly hard puzzles. If you want hard puzzles that make you think and look everything over twice, the Absolutely Nasty Sudoku book series is for you. Each book is harder than the last, making the fourth book an ultimate test of your Sudoku abilities and your patience. This series is for those who know hard to work Sudoku puzzles and can finish a newspaper puzzle in under five minutes.

I am now solving these puzzles for a third time and have yet to solve each puzzle. This is a series you can count on to make a prime solving event each time you open the book, and every time to try the book. If you an get every puzzle in one of these books then you are a true Sudoku master.

Tired of 'challenging' Sudoku books from "Will the pill"? Then this is the book for you. When I bought it (March 9, this year), I thought I was big and bad when it came to Sudoku. Then I got a BIG dose of humility when I could not get past the few couple pages, and I realized that I better take my voice down a bit, because this book has puzzles that require methods you'll never need for garden variety Sudoku books.

So how to learn how to get to next level (or maybe several levels up)? As mentioned in some reviews here already, this book doesn't have any instruction, it only has puzzles, so you need something else. I also bought the 'Mensa guide to solving Sudoku', and it's a good start, but I felt it didn't covers chains as well, and chains are ubiquitous in Absolutely Nasty .... So I use the tutorials from the Andrew Stuart site ( http://www.sudokuwiki.org/sudoku.htm ) quite a bit too.

I know someone will ask, did I use the solver from the Andrew Stuart site also? Well truth be told, yes I have, but only after the fact. Let me explain: sometimes when you're deep in a tough puzzle, you come to the point where you take a guess a cell (is it A or is it B), then follow through to see if it works, using little tiny checkmarks to mark the tentative deductions. And sometimes, this works all the way to end and puzzle is solved, but you can still see all your candidates there. In that case, I'll write "guess worked" in my book, and later, I'll enter the puzzle as it was at the guess point into the Andrew Stuart solver, to see what I missed. Typically it was a XY chain (which I struggled with for a while)

Final comments:
1) I wish the puzzles where a little bigger on the page, because drawing all the candidates in one box gets a little crowded sometime. But that’s minor
2) Almost 5 months after buying Absolutely Nasty, I’ve solved all but 4 puzzles in it. Drives my wife crazy when I work on it late at night when I should be sleeping. Those of you who love Sudoku will understand ...

As someone who searches for seriously difficult sudoku, I love this book. The puzzles are all very hard, but still require a variety of solving methods, some of which I find approachable, and others of which are truly painful, at least for me. I agree with another reviewer that it would be nice to have "speaking" solutions, that is, solutions that explain how the puzzle was solved, but solving methods vary so much by player that this is probably only a dream. There are truly no linear solution methods, which is what makes sudoku so attractive.

Compared to the many other books that claim to offer very hard sudoku, this one stands way out as telling it like it is.

I criticised the "Mensa Guide" book for its fragile binding and tiny grids, so I have to award big points for the spiral binding and large grids of this book.

I love this Sudoku book. Having graduated to really, really hard Sudoku, this book fits the bill. It takes a while to do all of the puzzles so by the time I have finished, I can get a new one to start again because I have forgotten the earlier ones. There is no guessing with these puzzles which is immensely important to me.

Bifurcation and nishio are fancy terms for guessing and I don't want to solve puzzles that require that. This book starts with puzzles that may use only one fiendish technique to solve and ends with puzzles that take many techniques to solve. You will be frustrated by these puzzles unless you have taken the time to learn techniques like swordfish, XY wings, Gordonian rectangles, etc.

Addicted suduko-ites who are not familiar with advanced techniques might want to pick up Peter Gordon's Mensa Guide to Solving Suduko. Don't let the 'Mensa' scare you. A dedicated normal person can do it. Then work through the Absolutely Nasty Sudoku series. I have had a lot of fun with it. Good Luck!

I think this is the best Sudoku book I have ever found. In fact, I like it so much that I have purchased it three times. About 1/2 of each puzzle can be solved by standard means. The remainder require multiple applications of advanced techniques such as Terbot Fish, Forcing Chains, WXY wings, etc. I highly recommend it

This book and its siblings (Levels 1, 2 and 3) are, in my opinion, the best Sudoku puzzle books out there. They are, in fact, SO GOOD, that as my husband and I work our way through them, I keep reordering Levels 3 and 4, which are the levels that challenge us the most. Other things I love are the ring binding, the large-sized puzzles (2 per page), and the quality of paper, which helps with erasures. These levels are not for the neophyte. If you have not mastered higher techniques in solving Sudoku puzzles, carefully back away.
Manris
Puzzles take a little longer than usual to solve. I did the first 5 and found them very similar in architecture and style of solution. All of them so far you can get 50% complete with normal logic and patterns than you have to put in all the options and then find the one that does not conflict. I found the Will Shortz book much more interesting in that each puzzle had a slightly different pattern and style to the solution. This book does have the same difficultly level as the highest level in the newspaper ones.
