Hi Patrick. Yes, the larger version of the 25x25 is very helpful - thanks. I was a bit confused at first, but then I realized that I simply needed to cut off the stray edges and see where the cages and corners were supposed to overlap.

Skeeter84,
Patrick has done this four page version of extra large puzzles since the 2nd vol. of Advanced Calcudoku Puzzles, or so I think. Anyone can correct me if If I wrong.

I find the four page version of an extra large puzzle incredibly helpful.

A request: are there any (retired) math teachers (for example) among the readership of this book,

willing to write an endorsement?

i.e. something along the lines of "This book should be required in my math class! .. Prof. Einstein" [thumbup]

(the one-liners you typically see on the back cover / inside flap etc.)

A note if you're looking for the book on Amazon UK:

apparently it is possible for a reseller to "hijack" ("buy") the buy button,
which someone has done.

The book went from 9.95 pounds to 24 pounds, and from direct availability to "ships in 1-3 weeks" [cursing]

I have no idea why the regular price does not show up anymore (I'm checking with Amazon, but they're a bit slow replying).

The reseller seems to be based in France, so I guess they buy the book there, wait for it to arrive,
send it on, and then pocket the difference.

In Amazon.es the price has not varied, since I bought the book, from the original 12.95 €.
But it's true that they are quite slow for some purposes; for instance, I inserted a review on saturday 27, and had a feedback that it would take some time, but until this moment the review has not appeared.

Thanks. I think the typical time for a review to appear is about 3 days.

Also, fortunately, the correct UK price is shown when your shipping address is in the UK [namaste]

I checked just now and the book is still priced at £24 on Amazon.co.uk
