The first section of the book, 'elementary puzzles', wasn't too bad. Only about 5 out of the total 112 puzzles I had no idea how to solve. I ultimately either couldn't solve or got the wrong solution to less than 10 of these. So far so good.
Fast forward to the next section and I started having to consistently skip problems before being able to find one I could solve. I got to around puzzle 200 before I stopped because, on average, I was only able to solve (or even have an idea on how to solve) maybe every other problem. Hence, I've decided this book is a bit too advanced for me and I'm shelving it until I improve a bit more.
In addition, the reader should be warned that for the puzzles that have hints to them, the hints can be confusingly ambiguous. One hint reads: "The game continued [move order given] with an eventual draw. What had both players missed?" The diagram indicates that it's white to move so you'd expect the puzzle solution to be an improvement for white. Except it's not...it's for black. Why couldn't the puzzle start with white already having moved and it being black's turn to play?
What makes this even more confusing is that in other, almost identically-worded puzzles, the improvement IS for the first player to move and not vice versa. So at times, it's never clear which side you're supposed to be improving.
I also have to echo the words of another reviewer (who also rated this 3 stars) in saying that the difficulty from one puzzle to the next can jump quite considerably. I also have to corroborate what this reviewer said about Emms not adequately explaining what the phrase "difficulty level 2-4" actually means.
Overall, I would rate this a satisfactory, though far from perfect puzzle book for its intended audience. However, that audience is decidedly more on the advanced, as opposed to intermediate, side of the spectrum. Hence, I would not even consider this book unless your playing strength is ~1800 elo or above.
My only complaint is that I wish there was a travel-size edition, as this is large enough to not want to take on the plane.
