Reviews

From the reviews:

"An introduction to programming Mindstorms NXT robots using the NXT-G programming toolkit by Lego is provided in this book. … The book covers every step needed to write programs, starting from no knowledge of programming and slowly bringing in additional programming constructs. … Overall, the book is clear and well written, intended for an audience with no programming skills who need step-by-step instructions … ." (M. Gini, ACM Computing Reviews, Vol. 49 (12), December, 2008)
