Great book filled with tips for someone getting started with Minecraft - or for parents wanting to know how to play or what it's about!

Thoroughly enjoyed this. Never thought I would write such a thing about a MineCraft book! Breaks down some of the more complicated, but in turn more rewarding aspects of the game.
