Product Overview

Sudoku is here! The number-puzzle craze that originated in the United Kingdom, sweeping both that country and Japan (who gave the puzzle its name), finally hits the United States. The puzzle requires solvers to enter the numbers 1 through 9 in an 81-square grid, so that each number appears only once in every row, column, and 3x3 box within the larger grid. Michael Mepham, who creates both sudoku and crossword puzzles for England's Daily Telegraph, explains the origin and the rules of sudoku, provides detailed tips for sudoku solution, and presents (with answers) over 130 of the puzzles, ranging from "gentle" to "diabolical."

From The Publisher:
All over the world, sudoku books are flying off the shelves. The addictive logic game, originated in the UK and popularized in Japan, has spread across the globe. The puzzles are now run in daily newspapers throughout Europe and Asia and the mania for sudoku has just now reached American shores. The Los Angeles Times, USA Today and the New York Post and some 60 US newspapers have jumped on the bandwagon. Sudoku may, like the crossword puzzle, stay a lifetime or it may be the meteor-like phenomenon of 2005, but one thing is clear: THE BOOK OF SUDOKU #1 and THE BOOK OF SUDOKU #2 are the first books of their kind to hit the States, and the simplest introductions to the puzzle.

About The Author:
MICHAEL MEPHAM is a veteran puzzle compiler and is perhaps best known as the man behind The Daily Telegraph's Weekend giant general knowledge crossword puzzle in London.
