The book's young author made news in 2007 when he built a Lego robot that can solve a 3x3 Rubik's Cube in less than a minute. Here, he instructs users of the combined building kit and software Lego Mindstorms NXT on the construction and programming of eight types of robots. Illustrations are abundant, and the text is appropriate for beginning programmers. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
