NXT 2.0 Discovery Book, Reviewed by Wired



One of the authors of GeekDad, Wired, has reviewed my new book, The LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT 2.0 Discovery Book: a Beginner's Guide to Building and Programming Robots.

The author of the review notes that the book "should come with every MINDSTORMS NXT 2.0 Kit," and goes on to say that the book is "not simply an instruction manual, it is a book to facilitate learning and understanding." The review goes on to say many more great things about the book. Read the full review by clicking this link.

The Discovery Book, which came out in May, has been selling very well since. As of this writing, the book has received 17 five-star reviews on various Amazon divisions, and several more reviews have been posted to other places on the web. You can read all about the book on it's companion website.

Thanks to all of you who gave me feedback about the book, either through reviews or by sending an email. Because of this feedback, I've learned that there is no age limit for neither MINDSTORMS nor the book: emails reported that people aged 6-74 have enjoyed using the book (with success). I'm always interested to hear your experiences with the book, so please feel free to send me an email any time.

And, to those who already have the book, stay tuned. More should be coming later this year.
