Keep in mind tho, that it does not have any step-by-step instructions for any model inside the book. Instead, it provides enough pictures for you to use your imagination to try and reverse-engineer the models within. I especially love the "Handful of Bricks section" at the end of each chapter where they showcase the variety of models you can create with just a few pieces.
Our son is not interested in exactly copying the ideas in the book at this point. This is probably partly his age, partly his personality type. However I do not think that any of the ideas in the book require step-by-step directions. You can pretty much tell by looking at the pictures what sort of bricks to use. I did stalk eBay lego lots until I found one that was 12 lbs of random Legos for $65. This resulted in enough Legos, I think, to do a decent approximation, if not copy of, anything in the book. (After researching lego organization for weeks, I also purchased 4 sets of Sterilite drawers (Sterilite 3-Drawer Organizer 2093). Unlike the official Lego organizer drawers, the Sterilite version have the advantage of not easily pulling completely out, which prevents mass dumping.) There are some minifigs in the book like a Frankenstein and a skeleton that would need to be purchased separately. Not having these has not bothered our son, however, who makes his own characters by drawing faces and outfits on paper, cutting them out, and taping them to his existing minifigs.
Very happy with this book.
