5.0 out of 5 stars The definitive guide to Robot Warfare ! 24 July 2000
By A Customer
This is one of the best books on Robot Wars that I have contains just about every conceivable snippet of information on the show; everything from behind the scenes details, the people behind it, the contestants and of course, the robots.
The book looks at how several teams have designed and built their own robots, and shows you exactly what is involved in getting a robot into the contest and the total mayhem that is Robot Wars.
If you want to know how the show is put together, the sheer effort, as well as the triumphs and truamas of all involved, it's all here in this book. A thoroughly enjoyable read for fans of all ages.

This guide gives you all you need to start construction of your own bot but leaves the design up to you (and how to get the money to build one). Include detailed pictures and technical data which certainly helped me on my bot. Buy it its worth the money!

Not a bad book after all, plenty , no , loads of pictures not published before. A wide range covering the UK contestants and their robots and backstage and house robots. You may have to read it a few times but there are some good tips and hints in there for would be constructors to pick up on. There is also a lot of quoted material from the contestants and constructors. A good attempt to try and cover what is such a vast subject. Certainly a must buy if you are considering entering and just as good if you are one of the legion of fans.
