This book arrived 3 hours ago. I've waited 4 months for it. It really teaches you robotics. I now understand gears!!
The diagrams are clearer than 'The Mayan Adventure' which has greyish black and white photographs. I'm confident the chapters on programming will explain NXT-G. The 6 robots - based on 4 designs look incredible. They start simple and get complex. If number 6 does what it says (and I think it will) I will be amazed.
This book, the Mindstorms NXT set and some well chosen storage containers (essential!) combine to make the best £200 Christmas present around.
Only criticisms are:
1) The models require some pieces that are not in the 9797 education set
2) The pictures are black and white so it is not easy to see what new pieces are being added
Having said that, the models can easily be adjusted to achieve similar result with the pieces you have.
I am not saying the building instructions are no good - just that they are not as clear as the full colour diagrams you get in instructions from lego themselves.
