Are you a Lego fan? ... If the answer is yes, then you must purchase this book. It doesn't matter what your age is, you will enjoy going through this book over and over again.
I purchased this book for my boyfriend as a birthday gift but I couldn't help going through it a few times before wrapping it up. We had looked at it various times at the bookstore but never purchased it because it was full price there so I got it for him here at Amazon because they always have anything for way cheaper than most places.
The great thing about this book is that it's actually 2 books that come in a box. One is about Lego in general like sets they have made throughtout the years and the second book is about minifigures only. The minifigure book was my favorite because of course that's the best part of any Lego set...the minifigures. It shows the very first minifigures they did to the most recent ones and it divides them by type of set they came in. It doesn't show all the minifigures they have made but it does show the most popular or important ones.
Once again.. don't hesitate to buy this book for even a second. It's well worth the money even if you do happen to buy it at full price. The pictures are very colorful and will entertain you every time you look at it. This is one of those books that you can look at over, over, and over again and never get tired of.

The images in the books are bright and beautiful. My son has spent hours looking at them, and it inspires him to dig into his Lego bin and start building. They are fun for adults too as they provide a very brief history of Lego.

Family gift to our daughter and family for Christmas. One of the granddaughters really loves it. She really enjoys building with legos. I guess an engineer in the future for us. All of us enjoyed the history section of legos.

The color pictures of LEGO pictures of the different pieces and their history was very interesting. The General history of the company was interesting. I did not realized the company was as old as it is. I highly recommend it

We got this book at the library and my 6 yo loved it so much we had to buy it for ourselves. He loved all the cool things others had built and could not wait to make his own creations. A "must have" for all lego fans!!

Bought for my young son who also loves the Star Wars Lego books. One of the few things he reads of his own accord. A thorough history for adult fans too. Cheaper at WHSmith online, but not always clear on availability.

The book itself is wonderful! My son just loves sitting and looking at all the pictures. It took quite awhile for the book to arrive though-I was just about ready to contact Amazon about when it finally arrived.

Fun, informational, beautifully done pictures and descriptions. Easy to read, understand and share. My son has spent hours reviewing the info in this book and sharing what he has learned with us and his friends.

For something called "The Lego Book," one would expect a comprehensive wealth of information regarding our favorite interlocking blocks. Unfortunately, this book is only 200 pages in length, only 46 of which are actually dedicated to a skin-deep celebration of Lego's history. The remainder of the book is (more or less) a litany of advertisements for modern Lego sets (the majority of which you can explore, in greater detail, online for free). While some historical sets have slipped in and there are a few fun facts to go over, the later pages encourage so much skimming that you'll be done with the book in less than an hour.

On the positive side, the book DOES give you a general feel for how Lego progressed over the ages and the book is of very high quality and filled with rich, vibrant images. If you're looking for something a bit meatier, however, you'll just have to look elsewhere.
