Review: Minecraft: Essential Handbook

Minecraft: Essential Handbook
Minecraft: Essential Handbook by Stephanie Milton

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Anyone who is new to Minecraft or curious about this game that has engrossed their kids should read this book. Filled with short descriptions, anecdotes and playing tips, the book is easy to put down when creepers arrive and equally easy to pick up after the threat has passed.

As a programmer and gamer, I appreciated the quips from creators Notch and Jeb about their early intentions and fumbles. My kids also enjoyed reading about other players who had made similar game play mistakes.

Overall a great little book that should grace the shelf of every serious Minecraft player. But be forewarned, there is a whole series of books to go along with it!
