By Mr Baz #1 REVIEWER#1 HALL OF FAME on 27 Mar. 2014
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this for my son who is a huge minecraft fan.
I have played the game a bit myself, but I'm far from an expert on it.

He's very pleased with the book it's given him some wonderful ideals for buidlings to create in his world.
The book is printed on nice quality paper, and with clear pictures, good print quality throughout (as you would expect from an official book)

Looking through the book you have a variety of designs from a wooden house, to an impressive tower bridge build, a rollercoaster, ships, nordic hall, palace gardens, mage city walls...a good mix I think.

It's worth a mention that some designs do have some step by step instructions (galleon ship, fortified wall, rollercoaster) Others such as the Steampunk City are really to inspire your own imagination. You do get tips and hints to help you with the building, but if you are looking for a brick by brick buidling guide this might not be for you. Even as a novice player I found it quite interesting and useful. My son is very pleased with the book as it's given him some new ideas to work with. Some of the top Minecraft players contributed to the book, as an adult it's quite amazing to see the imagination put into the designs, as well as the time and effort to build them.

There are a lot of videos out there for building guides, but I think it's nice to have a printed book to look at.
A solid buy for budding Minecraft players

I bought this for my 9yr old son, who is an avid minecraft gamer. He is also someone who will do anything to get out of reading a book, so this is the perfect combination of reading and fun to get him to read.
Any book that get him to read willingly and with a passion is worth every penny.

This book is one of four so far Minecraft: The Official Combat Handbook,Minecraft: The Official Redstone Handbook,and Minecraft: The Official Beginner's Handbook.

They are hardback with glossy pictures and the text is easy to follow, well easy if you know what Minecraft is all about.
There are step by step instructions to objects such as a rollercoaster, a galleon ship and other images that inspire to build.
I have bought all of the books and will be pre-ordering any future ones.

These minecraft books are a must for anyone getting to grips with the game. We have a set in our house (boys aged 6&8) which are used as a reference point to teach them how to do specific things in the game. The books are so good I've purchased several sets as gifts over the past few months. Would recommend.

I bought this for my 12yr old niece, who plays a bit of minecraft, I got her this as she wanted to develop her skills and it was only £3! She would necessary sit down and read a book or any instructions, so this is helping her skills in more than one way, so this is definitely worth the money.

This book is one of four so far Minecraft: The Official Combat Handbook,Minecraft: The Official Redstone Handbook,and Minecraft: The Official Beginner's Handbook.

They are hardback with glossy pictures and the text is easy to follow, well easy if you know what Minecraft is all about.
It has step by step instructions to objects such as a rollercoaster, a galleon ship and other images that inspire to build.

She really liked them and have explained to me all the things she can now do - it was a great buy!

Bought as a gift for a 10 year old. Nice looking hardback full colour book.

Although lots of very nice pictures of what you could build in Minecraft (from castles to roller coasters) this only gave instructions for the most basic of builds and seemed to be a collection of pictures instead. Instructions very general too so reader would already need a good basic grasp of Minecraft in the first place. Most players would get more from watching YouTube videos or Googleing others' builds.
