Gr 6 Up—This informative guide to the LEGO EV3 Mindstorms kit provides clear directions for building and
programming five advanced robots. In order to find this book useful, readers must already own the LEGO EV3 Mindstorms
kit; author Benedettelli provides a chart of pieces in the appendix that readers should acquire if they own different
versions of Mindstorms kits. Tech-savvy students will find the projects engrossing, but be forewarned that this text is
not for novice Mindstorms users or those new to robotics. Black-and-white drawings may prove challenging for some to
compare with real life colored LEGOs. Readers are treated to a comic narrative throughout the book that mimics the
book's progress, which can help break up the tedious nature of instructional text and drawings, though they are more
entertaining than informative. Benedettelli painstakingly describes how to manipulate the kits and their myriad parts
and does not assume that the reader will have access to a computer, helpfully describing how to program without one. A
good addition for schools serving students on robotics or LEGO teams, but this guide may not find wide readership in
most public libraries.—Amy M. Laughlin, Darien Library, CT
