A great addition to an already popular game and something my son spent many hours dissecting and testing out. Nice and simple and not as complicated as some of the books you can buy on the subject.

Perfect for someone who is a big fan of minecraft, over time some pieces of information may become outdated as the game get updates but the main parts will still be there

After I picked up the book on construction (which my son liked a lot)
I decided to buy this one too. Overall I feel it's probably the more useful book of the 2 (the construction book is good but more for ideas than specific details)

This combat book though is quite different. It starts off with basic weapons showing you how to craft swords/bows, with a useful table on durability too and information on how to repair them. Other areas covered are TNT (a very popular one!) and armour. Bottom line the basic stuff you need to know with the recipe information right there for you.

You also get a guide to the various monsters in the game, creeper, spiders, zombies, skeletons, witch, enderman, wither, and lots of others... all the information you want is here. Their health, what they are vulnerable to, and tips on how to defeat them.

Enchanting is also covered in detail taking you step by step through the process, as are potions (helpful and harmful!)
The later part of the book covers multi player, battle strategy (including forts and traps) and achievements.

I am not an experienced player (more a novice) so I found the guide very handy. My son is more advanced though and knows quite a bit (he still found the book useful though, esp the info on enemies health and the charts/potions)
So for a newer player I think a great guide to pick up. For more advanced players might be handy to have as a reference guide, but might not get as much out of it. Both books are quite different, for ideas get the construction, for detailed information get this one. Or if you're like me get both!
