Sudoku books

Does anyone know of any good sudoku books that don't just include lots of puzzles (I can find trillions of those online:D ) but rather actual information about solving techniques, programming, etc. Things related to sudoku, aside from just the puzzles. I'd be interested in adding those to my library:)

Thanks!

There are indeed.

If you check out Amazon they have a good range of books. Off the top of my head Carol Vorderman does books that contain hints/tips and methodologies, and there is a Teach Yourself book - don't recall the author. Sudoku for Dummies I think gives some information and I'm sure that I've seen at least one on programming.

I wouldn't recommend Carol Vordeman's books. They're very simplistic and she uses her own terminology. She calls finding hidden singles 'dicing and slicing.

I must admit, I haven't actually read any of her instructions. I just bought the Massive book for the puzzles!

Thanks for the advice, guys:) I ended up buying the "Programming Sudoku" book. I can't wait for it to arrive!:)
