    1. I was hoping this would have a lot more pictures and show things to build with LEGOs. I'm not sure whether I'll ever really "read" it since it seems pretty dry on the surface.

    2. Review a book on Lego? Ser­i­ously? Not that I would make a secret of my con­tinu­ing fas­cin­a­tion with those funky little pieces of plastic and all that you can do with them, but I am con­stantly amazed by the vast eco­sys­tem that sur­rounds this Dan­ish won­der. I use the term won­der quite deliberately…it is won­der­ment, it is won­der­ful and it is this innate sense of curi­os­ity, of invent­ive­ness, of cre­ativ­ity, yet in a struc­tured, and deeply thought­fu [...]

    3. After building a few (OK, a lot of) Lego sets with my son, I've rediscovered my love for Lego and making custom builds. When I saw Allan Bedford's Unofficial Lego Builder's Guide I decided to give it a try, hoping for some ideas and useful information to incorporate into my own creations.The book covers some basic Lego information, including a brief history of the product, basics on dimensions and scales, etc. before launching into the more practical information. Bedford gives some good - if bas [...]

    4. The Unofficial LEGO Builder's Guide is a how-to book aimed at filling the gap for basic, comprehensive information about how to have fun and be effective while playing with LEGO.The book includes chapters on different common LEGO building styles, with hints and tips on each of them. It includes specific plans for a small number of models to demonstrate techniques. It also includes a Brickopedia - a list of common bricks with brief details and suggestions for each. The book provides online access [...]

    5. I've played with Legos for over a decade, but only now am I looking to improve the quality of my models. I thought this book would be a big help by giving me tips and tricks on how to make my creations a little more professional.I was wrong.Allan Bedford only covers the most basic of topics. Although he even goes into things like building jumbo bricks and sculpting with Lego, he doesn't actually go into detail about how to overall improve your creations. The chapter on sorting was no help either [...]

    6. A good primer on building with Lego. Covers everything from basic building techniques to storing your collection. No real "wow, that's useful" moments, but a good solid intro to the hobby. Actually, there was one tip using two brick separator tools that I will be sure to remember.The "Brickopedia" at the back was the original reason I got this book, and while I have since found far more comprehensive brick catalogs online, it was still an interesting and informative read. I doubt I'll end up ref [...]

    7. 5 stars mostly for being such a beautifully designed and elegantly written book. I might be getting sappy, but the cleanliness of the design and the simple, direct prose of the instructions and advice felt just like having a conversation with the person who creates those lovely wordless instructions in a lego set.The Unofficial Guide is relatively basic and could be read by older children, but also provides a lot of clever and why-didn't-I-think-of-that practices.Recommended.

    8. I confess, I scanned this book more than I completely read it, but it has some pretty good ideas on how to get started on more complex Lego building if you want to move past just building kits or very basic structures. It would have been nice if the interior illustrations and pictures could have been in color, but they are generally still quite clear even in black and white.

    9. I like Lego and I like reading this book because it taught me new technics and showed me how to build different things. It also inspired me with new ideas of things I could build with Legos.Compared to other Lego books this one had more basic informations.I would recommend this book to anyone who loves building legos. It is a good book to have in my lego collection.

    10. I am moving it back to my currently reading pile as. i am always pulling it back out to reference it. i have the b/w version and i am sure the coloured one would be easier but this is still a very goos book to use .

    11. The book contains some good material including design guides and a brick encyclopedia. Overall the content is at a fairly basic level.

    12. I love Lego books. I liked this book because it's technical. I gave it a four star rating because it ain't a step by step guide.

    13. A book for the serious Lego enthusiast. I really appreciated the Brickopedia and will be soon cataloging all my pieces accordingly.
