Why this book? The LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 robotics set offers unlimited possibilities to build and program robots, but exploring beyond the instructions included in the set can be a bit overwhelming when youre just getting started. The LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 Discovery Book is designed to help you discover the power of LEGO MINDSTORMS as you learn to invent, build, and program your very own robots. How does this book work?

Discover the many features of the LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT 2.0 set. The LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT 2.0 Discovery Book is the complete, illustrated, beginner's guide to MINDSTORMS that you've been looking for. The crystal clear instructions in the Discovery Book will show you how to harness the capabilities of the NXT 2.0 set to build and program your own robots. Author and robotics instructor Laurens Valk walks you through the set, showing you how to use its various pieces, and how to use the NXT software to program robots. Interactive tutorials make it easy for you to reach an advanced level of programming as you learn to build robots that move, monitor sensors, and use advanced programming techniques like data wires and variables. You'll build eight increasingly sophisticated robots like the Strider (a six-legged walking creature), the CCC (a climbing vehicle), the Hybrid Brick Sorter (a robot that sorts by color and size), and the Snatcher (an autonomous robotic arm). Numerous building and programming challenges throughout encourage you to think creatively and to apply what you've learned as you develop the skills essential to creating your own robots.Requirements: One LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT 2.0 set (#8547)FeaturesA complete introduction to LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT 2.0Building and programming instructions for eight innovative robots50 sample programs and 72 programming challenges (ranging from easy to hard) encourage you to explore newly learned programming techniques15 building challenges expand on the robot designs and help you develop ideas for new robotsWho is this book for? This is a perfect introduction for those new to building and programming with the LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT 2.0 set. The book also includes intriguing robot designs and useful programming tips for more seasoned MINDSTORMS builders.-

I (a hardware/software developer and radio ham for some 30 years) bought LEGO Mindstorms for my now eight-year-old son last Christmas. Being a LEGO nut since he was old enough not to swallow the pieces, he's had great fun with Mindstorms since then.

But after you've built the models detailed in the Mindstorms kit, where do you go next? The Mindstorms online help is pretty good, but tiresome to read on the screen, and not the best medium for a youngster. The Alpha Rex etc. are impressive but it's hard for a child to try to make his own models of a similar complexity on the basis of the models in the Mindstorms kit. There is a huge gap between copying ready-made models and learning to create real robots from scratch, and Laurens Valk's book fills that gap perfectly.

As "the missing manual", this book thoroughly explains the NXT hardware and NXT-G software, in enough technical detail to satisfy a seasoned programmer like me, but without overloading someone who is completely new to the technology. That is no mean feat!

The building instructions are of a similar quality to those provided in the all-too-slim Mindstorms manual, and my son was able to follow them and the programming instructions with only minimal guidance from me (usually because we hadn't yet read the accompanying text! :-)

Now, there are several ways to approach this book. To get started quickly, you or your child genius can simply follow the detailed building and programming instructions to create any of the eight robots detailed in the book. My son had almost no trouble doing this: in fact, he first went after the more complex models like the Strider featured on the cover, followed by the very impressive Chimney Climber. If, like us, you're new to the LEGO Technic and Mindstorms systems, you'll be surprised how they can be made to do such remarkable things.

The program instructions feature a simplified overview - essentially a flow diagram - that lets you follow the basic structure of the program and learn about loops, "if-then-else" blocks, etc. Your young robotics engineer can learn about the how-and-why of the programs, and gradually improvise to deepen his/her understanding of what the NXT controller is "thinking", and then devise clever ways to change it.

Then there are the challenges, or "discoveries" to use Laurens' word: 87 of them in all. Once we have settled down to reading the book together start-to-finish (give us a chance, we've only had this book for a week!), the discoveries will provide many new paths to explore and consolidate our understanding of robotic systems.

I would have expected to pay three times what Amazon is charging for this book, based on similar books aimed at software developers. At under $20, it is excellent value for money and an essential "NXT" step on any robot designer's path of discovery. Buy it!

Great book and should be provided with the LEGO MiNDSTORM robot. It starts out as if you know nothing about lego building, robots, or programming. If you are a somewhat experienced programmer, as I am, this book shows you the ins and outs of the NXTG language and how it works with the Lego robot. I lead a robotics team in a 4H club and I didn't learn about this book until the first year of instruction was just about over. I wish I would have had it before but I'll have it for the next round of classes.
The book leads you through the basics and then it walks you through different projects to construct and program. It shows basic flow charting techniques which are used in any programming language.
In my opinion, there could be two improvements. The programming blocks could be in color (that would probably increase the cost), and it didn't get into gears as much as I would like.
If you want to understand programming more than just downloading some else's program and how to design and build a Lego Mindstorm robot rather than watching a youtube video, this book is for you. I would recommend this book as a must to anyone who has purchased the Lego Mindstorm NXT.
Happy Programming,

I cannot imagine giving the gift of Lego Mindstorms without this book! My son, then 13, has commented throughout the year that he couldn't possibly have built as much as he had built without this book. He finds the book helpful and easy to understand. He's been playing with Lego and building since he was 3 years old. For him to say that about this set surprised me, but he loves it. Just today (he turned 14 yesterday), he was telling me is working through the touch sensor chapter and hoped to complete it soon. He's still, after 1 full year, still using this book as a guide. Absolutely worth the money!

It's the missing instruction manual that should come bundled with every NXT 2.0 set. Even though I'm a programmer and figured much out on my own this book was an eye-opener. There are things that you just don't get by looking at your NXT set like frictionless parts (to figure this one out I would have had to play for a long time with the set, I need to mention that I have a french manual and did not read through it or the English version, I'm just that lazy, but when skimming it I do not remember seeing anything on this topic).

I think this book really makes it easier for 10-year-olds to pick this up as well, normally this would be a daunting task with just the set and the examples.

Why rate it 4 out of 5? Because it's black and white, I feel like a dog when reading the book. The printing is good you can figure out the correspondence of the colors to the grayscale version using their table, but it feels as if it's missing that last bit of polish that would have made this a perfect book.

This is like the missing manual. I'm sure the information might be available in other places/forms but the instructions were easy to follow and the challenges got my son interested in the programming aspects. We had Mindstorm installed and the computer was talking to the controller before we opened the book. Based on the book we assembled and programmed the robot in short afternoon. Step by step by step. No hunting around for details or guidance.
This seems like a good book for beginners
