Funny as always, except they're editor's fingers.

In case you were afraid it would be a thin book...


That makes the wait even tougher! Pre-ordered mine last week.
(And I'll stop whining...it's so close that it practically arrived already, as we've been wanting it since you started the thread! :wink: )

Here's the very first review, courtesy of BotBench: http://botbench.com/...builders-guide/
I guess "you’d be crazy not to get it" means the book is fine :)

On this No Starch Press webpage, there are two updates to The Unofficial LEGO Technic Builders Guide:

"Page 65:  The sentence "The mechanical advantage of the power pulley system is equal to 2n" should read "The mechanical advantage of the power pulley system is equal to 2 to the power of n (2n)."

Page 117:  The gear ratios in Figure 10-7 are listed in opposite order: they should start with 1:2 at the top and end with 2:1 at the bottom."
