Will Shortz Presents the Little Black Book of Sudoku by Will Shortz [St. Martin’s Press - $12.95]

It’s that wacky number game the Japanese turned into a pop culture behemoth… Sudoku.  Few gift guides in this day and age would be complete without something for the puzzling addicts that proliferate on all forms of public transportation in our major metropolises.  The kick to Shortz’s book is that it comes bound in a pop-rific black, hard-bound cover with a colorful play on words that looks and feels all pop art trendy.  It’s the upscale puzzle book gift this year for the leather briefcase carrying set.
