Intermediate Robot Building
The only thing I can say is I bought it for my 16 year old grandson and he said it is awesome.
The LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT 2.0 Discovery Book: A Beginner's Guide to Building and Programming Robots
No Starch Press
A Tremendous NXT Teaching Accomplishment By A Young Roboticist
From his infectious enthusiasm for the Mindstorms NXT System it might be easy to guess that Laurens Valk was introduced to Lego Robotics at age 13 just five short years ago. But, from the careful logical pedagogy of this book and his interesting approach mixing successively more advanced robots intermixed with a clearly arranged taxonomy of parts, programming tools and motor/drive train and ...
Robot Programming : A Practical Guide to Behavior-Based Robotics
Essential Reading for Mobile Robot Builders
I have read dozens of robotics books over the years and most of them suck. They were either too academic or too basic. This book is excellent and was a refreshing change. Written by one of the designers of iRobots Roomba, this book is indeed a practical guide to robotics. It is easy to read and full of practical advice that one would only get if they spent the last 20 something years working ...
MAKE: Electronics: Learning Through Discovery
Best Electronics Book Ever
I cannot overstate that Make: Electronics is the greatest electronics book for budding hobbyists. From touching your tongue to a battery to working with micro controllers, this book is great fun and very educational. The author does not simply provide examples without instruction, nor do they explain theory in a vacuum. Instead, you read (and build) along with the experiments while at the same ...
Wilshire Book Co
Classic masterpiece still shining
After reading quite a few self-help and self-examination books, this is the book I was waiting for. Although at first I was quite skeptical because of the age of the book (I though "Would there be something new for me, would the ideas be still valid?"), after first several pages doubts dissolved and I was entirely caught. I believe all the reviews have said already enough, so I'll keep my ...
The Unofficial LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT Inventor's Guide
David J. Perdue
No Starch Press
Very good book, helps getting started with Mindstorms. Easy to use for my 11 year old.

Prostate cancer affects thousands of men every year, but it isn't a death sentence.

Super #1 Robot: Japanese Robot Toys, 1972-1982
This book is exactly what I was looking for. I wanted a picture book of toy robots to use as reference material for an art project. This book was perfect. Great photographs. The small format was appreciated-I did not need, nor want, a coffee table book. Minimal verbiage, lots of pretty pictures.
LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT: The Mayan Adventure (Technology in Action)
James Floyd Kelly
Learning the process
The value of this book is not in the number of documented designs, but how it teaches you the process to come up with your own designs. It even does it in a much more entertaining way then my engineering classes did. Understanding the design process allows you to create any number of robots that do what you want them to do and this is an invaluable life skill. That is what this book teaches ...
MicroC OS II: The Real Time Kernel (With CD-ROM)
Jean J. Labrosse
uC/OS-II documentation + RTOS book
This book is not only the documentation of the uC/OS-II RTOS. It also presents many of the general real-time programming concepts in a very pedagogical manner. I found the book very helpful.
Building Robots with LEGO Mindstorms NXT
This book is just fantastic. Starts out with the basics for building strong stable robots, and moves on to more complex ideas. Great examples of robots throughout the book which will provide ideas for building your own masterpiece. It doesn't have step by step instructions, and is more of an ideas book for NXT enthusiasts. I'd recommend this for your home or Robotics club library.
Creating Cool MINDSTORMS NXT Robots
A Very Cool, Highly Recommended NXT Book
If you're searching for some exciting NXT projects and ideas--or would simply like to build JohnNXT, a replica of the famous Johnny 5 robot--you will enjoy Daniele Benedettelli's book Creating Cool MINDSTORMS NXT Robots. The book presents helpful ideas that you can use in your own inventions and carefully integrates them in a variety of robots with detailed building instructions. In fact, these ...
Evolutionary Computation: The Fossil Record
A rare piece of scholarship.
A rare piece of scholarship by one of the leading scientists in the field. Evolutionary Computation has only recently matured to the point of being a separate discipline. The Fossil Record is a remarkable compilation of foundational research. Fogel does an excellent job of placing each work in its historical context. In many cases, he was fortunate enough to interview these pioneers of ...
Out of the Box: Building Robots, Transforming Lives
Ph.D. Andrew Williams
Lift Every Voice
Out of the Box -- a book well worth reading...
Out of the Box: Building Robots, Transforming Lives by Dr. Andrew Williams is a very good book. It is a call for all students, parents, teachers to understand and grasp that, as his favorite quote says "Success is never final. Failure is seldom fatal. But it's Courage that counts." - Winston Churchill. Dr. Williams takes you through the journey of his life and shows how no matter your ...
Optimal Control Theory: An Introduction (Prentice-Hall networks series)
Donald E. Kirk
I used this book for graduate course about Optimal control. It is written in very good style, friendly for everyone who is new to the topic. Optimal control theory seems very difficult in the first view, but this book can help doing the first steps. The book starts with explaining why optimal control theory is important. Then it builds static optimizing theory. After these simpler parts are ...
Multivariable Feedback Control: Analysis and Design
Useful to understand multivariable control and robustness
This is a very comprehensive book on multivariable control, particularly chapters 6, 7, 8 and 9 wich are very useful to people who want to understand robustness and are interested in studying these topics by themselves. It was of great help to me.

Build Your Own CNC Machine
A Cornucopia of Delights For Todays Maker: Electronic, Mechanical, Robotic and Software
Other reviewers have recounted the praises of this guide as a DIY guide to inexpensively (~$800.00) creating a machine that normally sells for up to $10,000.00 and which allows makers to create their own computer machined materials (even another CNC machine if that is their goal); I would like to touch on other benefits of this excellent volume. In particular, learning the process of creating a ...
Walt Disney Imagineering: A Behind the Dreams Look at Making More Magic Real
The book has tons of amazing photos of the parks - many from Tokyo Disney Resort, which is in itself an amazing park.
Loving the Machine: The Art and Science of Japanese Robots
Timothy N. Hornyak
fascinating, absorbing, informative
What else can I say that my title doesn't convey? My only carp--perhaps--is that the author fails satisfactorily to address the issue of why robots, so very hyped (albeit less so than, say, thirty years ago), have failed to establish significant inroads in domestic settings. Visit a Japanese automobile factory and you'll see robots everywhere--mounting parts, soldering, painting (even painting ...
