About Books ‘n’ Bots

This website is an online repository for unofficial LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT books. The 2009 release of the LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT 2.0 set as well as the 2006 release of the original NXT set have spawned numerous unofficial books detailing various aspects of the popular robotics kits. Publishers have produced NXT books devoted exclusively to programming languages, custom sensors, projects, competitions, and more.

As a MINDSTORMS author myself, I am quite familiar with the bevy of books that have been published, and I decided in 2008 to assemble a website devoted exclusively to NXT books. This website is the result. I hope that NXT fans will find this website helpful for discovering new books and learning which ones will interest and help them the most.

I have categorized the books by publisher and also included an International section. I’ve linked each book to its listing on Amazon.com where you can purchase it. Enjoy!
