About the Author

Matthew Monk has been playing Minecraft since the release of 1.2.5. From then on, he began to lean more towards the "modded" aspect of minecraft, rather than vanilla. As a keen player of the "tekkit" and the "Feed The Beast" modpacks, he has spent a lot of time experimenting with the ComputerCraft mod. Simon Monk is an established full time author, specializing in Open Source Hardware and Programming books. His titles include the best selling "Programming Arduino" and "Programming Raspberry Pi"

3.0 out of 5 stars Extremely basic 3 Jan. 2014
By Ramon L. Santiago - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If all you need is a beginner's guide or a simple starting point, this is for you. Otherwise, you may want to go somewhere else. This "book" is very small, simple and basic. I was expecting more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good examples and presentation, but this books really needs an editor. 27 Dec. 2013
By Jeffrey G Micono - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The presentation of the material is good and is a fast read. It is a quick introduction to Lua. That all said, there are simply too many typographical errors. For example, from the back cover. "With downloadable scripts and an installtion<sic> guide for them". The book has many sentence fragments and run-on sentences. On the positive side, the twitter example app is a good illustration of how to get data from the real world into Minecraft. Overall. I'd recommend this book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Superficial yet general 4 April 2014
By JerryH - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Even though the pricing is quite low, I can't recommend this on Kindle. The illustrations are to small to see and unreadable. The text does list the minor snips of coding contained. There is an extremely limited amount of information contained regarding code in computer craft, using computer craft, syntax or functions. The communication level I would rate at targeting a middle school student with a particularly short attention span. Essentially a worthless volume.
