Format: Hardcover
This is an abridged version of the review I wrote for Brickset.com.

The LEGO Adventure book, written by Megan Rothrock and published by No Starch Press has been highly anticipated since first announced a few months ago.

It's a hardback book and printed on high quality paper. Its 200 pages are full colour throughout.

The premise behind the book is that a minifig representation of the author (Megs) builds a home base and transportation (in chapter 1), along with a companion (a small robot) then travels around the world visiting MOCs and their builder's minifig representations, which are mostly shown in a photo-strip like presentation. It is therefore an unconventional approach and not exactly what I was expecting, but it does seem to work and prevents the book from becoming a dry read.

Each of the remaining 13 chapters of the book feature a particular builder and a selection of their MOCs. They usually focus on one theme, for example Mecha by Mark Stafford (Nabii), Friends by Katie Walker (Eilonwy77) and my favourite chapter of the book (because I love brick-built animals), `Triassic park' (dinosaurs) by Mike Psiaki.

Within each chapter there is usually some photo-strip interaction between Megs, the MOC builder and their models, lavish photos of their MOCs for building inspiration and also instructions for building one or more of the models, or to illustrate specific techniques (such as, in the case of Eilonwy77, her excellent cheese slope mosaics). The instructions are presented as photographs and are generally well done and most would be easy to follow.

This is a fun book to flip through. You will want to build the models and the techniques illustrated will provide inspiration for your own models.

I've only had this book for a couple of days and I've already returned to look through it numerous times. Both my first and subsequent impressions are that this is an excellent book, and a well laid out piece of LEGO literature.
It is an inspiring combination of many different themes and building styles. It is great for ideas, techniques, overview pictures and detailed instructions.
The pictures are really nice quality and it is a pleasingly sturdy book. The models are at a range of levels from quite simple to extremely complex.
I'd recommend this for fans of LEGO of all ages.

If you make your own LEGO creations (MOC's), you would most likely find tons of inspiration in this fine book!

Some of the instructions are not very easy to follow and you do need to have tons of spares to be able to complete some if not most of the creations in the book. I wished it was clearer in the descriptions.

I bought this for my nephew who adores Lego. Far better than some of the offical books as it actually has directions on creating models rather than simply images of the finished article.

Sturdy printing makes it 8 year old resistant too

This Lego book is different. It's a kind of comic story told with Lego,
Minifigs and speech bubbles, combined with building instructions.

Though all the models are part of the story, they were designed not by
one, but by 14(!) different Lego enthusiasts. And that's what makes
the book fresh and valuable: because every chapter is so different and individual,
you get an exceptional insight into the richness and diversity of Lego.

My compliments to the author for bringing all these cool designers together!
