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
