Books are not a typical staple of Minecraft, generally speaking. Online guides and direct assistance from friends have long made up the bulk of information-gathering the game, and that has not changed much over the years. Even so, some pretty awesome books about Minecraft have come along, should that tickle your fancy, like the one above: The Survivor's Book of Secrets, direct from Mojang!
As the title suggests, this book mainly covers survival tactics, ranging from the basics, all the way up to some pretty innovative defensive, combative, and even pvp-centric strategies. While definitely tailored for new-to-casual players, even veterans of the game are likely to find some pretty clever tricks inside. The book runs £3.00 (Approximately $4.50), a pretty sweet deal for a book that's packed full of useful information, illustrated guides, and durable construction. Sweet!
Mojang has a number of other books in the series as well; we may do a review series on each of them in the near future!
