The first 25 pages describe the basic objects and mobs found in the game. Seventeen pages are devoted toward building projects:
1. Cozy Cottage
3. Mob Spawner Trap
4. Sliding Piston Door
While I haven't tried the third project, it looks to be the most valuable part of the book to me, since mob traps are highly desirable. The fourth project is similar (if not identical) to one presented by the Redstone Handbook.
The rest of the book expects input from the reader, and a few pages might be sacrificed if you want to explore papercrafting and use the two hangers. There are eight puzzles and games, with answers to the puzzles in the back.
Overall, this book is not what I expected by the title. I figured it would be a yearbook of Mojang's Minecraft development process (although the first four pages do highlight the prominent staff members). But, it is still a good source of info for beginner's and the very young Minecrafters out there suffering from withdrawal symptoms.
I don't know a whole lot about Minecraft but I do know a lot about my seven year old. He doesn't love to read and usually does it only when forced. He sat down and read this book cover to cover. That pretty much tells me all I need to know.
