Format: Paperback
Just a note that this book is written for the "45544 LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 Core Set", and not the regular "31313 LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3" that most people will have. For instance the Education set comes with additional sensors (Ultrasonic and Gyroscopic) that the book assumes you have.

HASH(0x9c59dd50) out of 5 stars Book content is good but it is in black and white 9 Mar. 2014
By zaphod42 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book content is good.

But, beware! This book is not in printed in color! The online preview suggests the book is printed in color. But it is not. The paper version is printed in gray scale. Of particular concern are the diagrams for four projects. The text does not even mention the actual color of the parts. Also, the screenshots of the EV3 brick LCD are almost illegible.

I'm giving the book one star because the Amazon description does not mention that the book is not in color. I find this deceptive.

HASH(0x9c59df9c) out of 5 stars Good Book but only BLACK AND WHITE, not color as shown on webpage 31 Mar. 2014
By Albert S. Berman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased this book for my grandson who is ill. When I looked at the sample pages on the website the illustrations were shown in full color. However, when my grandson started reading the book, it was all in black and white.

I rated it 3-stars because the information is good and well presented.

I am very disappointed in Amazon that they would not only mislead potential buyers on what they are going to get, but they also ignored a review from almost a month ago pointing out this misleading webpage.

HASH(0x9c59df60) out of 5 stars The Kindle edition is in color 2 April 2014
By Gary Schnettler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I haven't started reading the book yet, but wanted to let everyone know that the Kindle edition is in color. Perhaps it doesn't appear in color on a Black and White Kindle, but it's in color on my computer and iPad Kindle apps.

HASH(0x9c59e270) out of 5 stars All pictures in the book is Black Whilte 28 Mar. 2014
By Loh Chee Wah - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book is informative. However, all the illustrations and pictures in the book are black and while. Honestly most picture is quite difficult to see, for example page 30, Figures 2-1. This make the whole book look like those pirated copy. And don't be fooled by the "Click and to LOOK inside", which is with color picture and illustration. Action copy is not.
HASH(0x9c59e2d0) out of 5 stars Not sure where to begin with EV3? This book is for you! 25 July 2014
By J. Sumpter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I checked out the ebook because I was looking to see how difficult programming EV3 was before dropping $300+. I'm so glad that I did! This book walks you through in great detail how to get up and running with a Mindstorms EV3 project. The illustrations are great, colorful and plentiful in the ebook. I learned a ton about the different sensors and brick programming options. If you are going to spend the money on the EV3, this book is a definite must have as well.
