Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nana Approved! My grandson downloaded Minecraft onto my computer and I got hooked on it totally. So, for a quicker learning curve I got this and it is really good. Easy to read and chock full of information for us kids of all ages.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cool... As a birthday gift for my son, I would recommend this guide to any player for helpful tips and information you may not get just by playing the game. He was able to do things that he had only previously heard about from others. He makes new discoveries whenever he plays. I like it because he reads more!
