Comments about oreilly The LEGO Build-It Book, Vol. 2:
So, this is the second volume of the series. I picked up the first volume because my son is just into LEGO. The book was so good that when I saw this come up, I knew I had to get it. I saw this book on the O'Reilly Blogger Program and got a copy for free from them. The content of the book is excellent. The pictures show you step-by-step how to build each model. What's even better is if you have all the bricks you need for the first volume, it will be exactly what you need for this one! I was really impressed that they did that and didn't require buying any extra bricks or a different package. I prefer the models in this volume over the first one and think they did a very good job again. I would definitely recommend it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
