In the end, I could see this book to be a blessings for my boys. It contains so much information that I know that they building skills will only get better as time goes by. They will be challenge to get more and more detailed in their creations.
This book is a perfect gift for the man or boy in your life that loves Lego. Even I will learn a thing or two about building with Lego bricks!
The Unofficial Lego Builder's Guide begins by covering the very basics of Lego building before continuing to a discussion of scales in Lego (minifigure scale, miniland, microscale, etc). Chapters are then devoted to such topics as sculptures, mosaics, conceptualizing a Lego design (deciding on things like shape, color, proportion, and repetition), and other things to do with Lego (such as creating custom building instructions or making games). Interspersed among the chapters are step-by-step instructions for small projects related to the chapter. These projects are well-explained and help solidify the point being made in the text. The author has chosen the examples well, and the inclusion of a myriad of pictures lends descriptive power.
The final two sections of the book differ slightly from the others. The first is called the Brickopedia. This visual encyclopedia of Lego brick shapes/styles gives a lot of information (such as name, part number, and notes for usage) for each listing. The selection of bricks is massive, and yet, by the author's own admission, it contains only a fraction of the total Lego piece catalog. All of the bricks are separated by category, and there is also a section of special Lego elements, which could be very useful in creating new models. The second slightly different chapter details the use of design grids in conceptualizing and designing Lego models by using what are essentially Lego blueprints. A link is provided, so that readers can download and print their own design grids for personal use.
In conclusion, I found that The Unofficial Lego Builder's Guide contains a lot of technical Lego knowledge. While this book may not be the right choice for someone looking to get inspiration for a new model, it should certainly provide them with the techniques for building well-constructed and excellent-looking models. For new Lego builders and experienced designers alike, this book is a worthwhile purchase and a worthy addition to the Lego-building table or bookshelf.
And like all the No Starch Press books I've read, The Guide does a wonderful job of combining words and photographs. It's a beautifully-designed book, and for that reason will appeal to adults as well as children. If you can pry it out of Charlie's hands.
Actually planning??? I remember dumping them out an the floor and building until there were not more pieces.
This book is great in taking your through an entire project from concept to finish. OK, so I like this aspect of it a lot too.
The book is written very well and almost any kid with Legos can use it.
Hats off to No Starch for a book that is great for all ages.
If you are thinking about this as a holiday gift, think about it this way. This is a great gift that once you get it, you can then use it with the kids if your holiday get-together gets dull
I loved the way in which it takes you from the very beginning planning stages to full creation of your lego masterpiece. This book held so much great content into one place, and if you are either a person that has been working with legos for many years, or if you are new, this is a great book for all levels of lego enthusiasts.
