American Mah-Jongg (2006 NMJL card). I seem to be announcing new books a lot lately, but this one is special for me, since I wrote the foreword. Elaine Sandberg has authored "A Beginner's Guide To American Mah Jongg; How To Play The Game & Win," to be released in May by Tuttle Publishing.

The author couldn't be reached for comment for this column, but maybe we will hear from her later to talk about the highlights.

I always recommend that every player have the official rulebook, and this one is also a must-have!
