This is a very well written book and the cover, binding, and pages are all good quality. Bottom line on the physical quality of the book: Very good. This book will last for a very long time under normal book wear and tear conditions. The content of the book is also very well done and presented. It goes through a lot of redstone components and explains what they do, and also shows you how to build a couple redstone contraptions. I only gave 4 stars however because it really only gives you 10 or so redstone machine plans, all of which are rather easy to build. As a pretty seasoned minecraft player, there wasn't too much new information for me in this book but what was there was very high quality. If it had given more complex redstone machine plans i would have given 5 stars, and I would definitely recommend this book to someone who is either new to minecraft or doesn't understand redstone very much.

A youtuber by the name of CNBMinecraft seems to be the primary author here. Which is cool because we all had thought he had fallen off the map, but no! He has been busy writing a book on Redstone for Scholastic.
I am kind of sad that he is not listed as the author but rather Scholastic is cited as the primary author.
CNB Minecraft is a great worker of the redstone and has a great youtube channel for walking players through many redstone devices from simple to complex. His methods are both elegant and functional. Often as compact as minecraft will permit.
He brings that same ease of use to this book (by 'scholastic') on how to use and control very simple Redstone devices, all the way up to massive logic arrays. Detailed and illustrated. Anyone who is interested in how to build redstone devices should get this book as it will take you from no knowledge to building computers inside your computer (with redstone)

Best redstone book ever.
I was a noobie to redstone until now. This is the first book related to minecraft that I have ever bought. After reading this book I will consider buying other minecraft books from Mojang.

‘Minecraft: RH OMB’ is useful guide to Redstone, one of the more complex parts of Minecraft world.

Advertised as a guide made by and for Minecraft experts that will take you through all the aspects of Redstone, it manages to show these characteristics for the most part, although there are some more minor details on which could be worked on in order to truly becomes the ultimate guide.

I have such an opinion mostly due to the lack of crafting and using of ballistic projectiles, though in terms of everything else it is a great complement to Beginner's Handbook with its tutorials that among others explain mining, smelting, circuit components and circuit designs usage. As a nice add-on for kids which want to learn more, inside its covers can be found some exclusive tips from game creator and some cool Redstone creations.

So if until now you used a Beginner’s Handbook, and you want to have on one place virtually all information about Redstone, this manual will please you.

Let's only hope that its small flaw will be corrected in the next edition because only that makes it just as step away from the ultimate guide.

Format: Hardcover
Absolutely brilliant,

The themes of these books are great. Sure anyone can just find a YouTube tutorial on how to do these things, but in game, Thus book is quick and easy to pick up and read about what to do next.

The layout is great, it has a nice balance of tutorials and DIY projects to keep the reader on his or her toes. The language is very simple and easy to follow but it still maintains enough logical and technical definitions to keep an adult reader coming back for more.

The design of the cover is very stylish with its old fashion bound book deco and reflective gold accents. These would look great on a bookshelf or displayed on a wall

He seemed happy with it and used a few of the ideas inside. I love the design of the book as well. I may just have to collect the whole set.
