My son swiped it soon after it arrived in the house though as has taken it to bed with him every night since. He is a reluctant reader and its difficult to get him to read anything but he has read this from cover to cover and has it with him when he is playing so he can look things up that he doesn't understand. He discovered how to do things like build beacons and how to use potions ( or something like that!).
We have recommended it to all the Minecraft fans we know. It's particularly great for younger players as I suspect older players can get what info they need from forums and such but my son does not yet know how to the navigate the web that well and I am happy to delay that for as long as possible.
Best minecraft book there is that I know of!!!
otherwise good buy, and price.
1. It started well, giving the basics however by the chapter 4 the author did not even bother to explain how ingredients should be arranged at the work bench, it is not good just saying 2 of those and 1 of that.
2. I decided to build my castle using the easiest found materials, the book did not warn me that it will be all will destroyed if there is a rain. Minecraft tries to simulate natural environments, of course there will be a rain.
3. A very important one, the writer insist on playing on the level where you do not get hurt. Basically the level for a kindergarten.
Only the first 2 chapters were written to help you, the rest is 10 times worse then Wikipedia.
The author should be fired by the books of "for Dummies".
I get the feeling the author never played the game he just copied information on the net without even experiencing or knowing it.
This book should not only be hated but banned.
