Wow – what a great book! First off, it contains a very clear explanation of creating an algorithm to solve Sudoku. Since I’m interested in creating puzzle solving algorithms, this is naturally something I want to read! I wish I could explain things as well as he does. Secondly, it serves as a great starter project for someone new to Visual Studio 2005 and Visual Basic. I really enjoy programming books that have a single project as their goal – and this one is the best I’ve seen. It makes it so much more useful than a book that contains nothing but disjointed code fragments.
