Recommends it for: Minecraft Players, Parents of Minecraft Players
I was able to download the electronic book from Wiley even though it has not yet been made available to other outlets. I have a personal relationship with the author, but I am also a long term gamer and I have to say that this an excellent guide to players (and their parents who are trying to understand this strange new world their kids can't stop talking about).

Without this book I would still be stuck in the cave. I almost ran out of food had to defend myself from zombies and skeletons, without this book... I wouldn't be here today. Now I am at bed rock were I lay, mining mining, mining all day. Till I come home to eat dinner with my Horse. Then when the night is winding down there is a creeper looking in my window, THE END. I now am nomadic, walking around looking for a new horse and place to call home, also food would help too though.

Actually, I haven't read it, but I would want to read it. But, i do recommend that you check out this book, and tell me if this is a good book

Having a simple "For Dummies" book greatly helped my 8yo figure out how the game worked and what it entailed. This reference guide is great for younger kids since you can comfortably hand them a copy to sit and read without worrying about the crude language and raunchy behavior found in online videos and other tutorials. He's only had the book a month but he's already worn out the spine.

This is an EPIC BOOK TO READ (If you want to learn to play minecraft). This book basically teaches everything you need, from punching the hell out of trees, to slashing at a dragon with enchanted diamond swords! I learned a lot from this book, and that's why I know how to play.

The book I read to research this post was Minecraft For Dummies by Jacob Cordeiro which is a very good book that I bought on kindle. This book is a For Dummies portable edition so is only around 150 pages but it is a very interesting book. It's about a game called minecraft which is available as a retail game for both the computer and the xbox 360 and in addition can be played as an online game with both a free basic option and a premium paid option with more features. It can be played as both a ...more

I am reviewing the book Minecraft For Dummies by Jacob Cordeiro which is a good book.Minecraft is a low resolution game played over a network daily. The graphics are quite poor to this game that I think is mostly open source in origin and has versions of it available for all the major consoles. The basic essence of the game is you are mining for some kind of mineral presumably and there are all sorts of mineral presumably and there are all sorts nasties lurking around and you have to avoid them. ...more

A very nice, compact introduction to the game. Not a lot of depth, but you shouldn't expect that of a pocket edition. Like most books of this type, it concentrated on the PC edition, but did mention the others.

I am terrible at Minecraft. This book helped me understand it a bit better. But the important thing is that I now know you can eat zombie flesh, ride pigs, and travel to Hell. This game is terrifying.
