For expert LEGO builder Nathanäel Kuipers, it's not how many bricks you have but how you use them. A former official designer for the LEGO Group, Kuipers shares his insider expertise in "The "LEGO Build-It Book, Vol. 1: Amazing Vehicles" (No Starch Press, July 2013, 136 pages, US$19.95, ISBN 9781593275037).
The book shows readers how to use a collection of standard parts to construct a variety of models. With a handful of easy-to-find pieces, builders of all ages can make 10 vehicles ranging from a simple go-kart to a rescue truck.
Readers learn to build each of the models in "The LEGO Build-It Book, Vol. 1" through step-by-step instructions with full-color renderings created by co-author Mattia Zamboni. The book also features creative building techniques that help readers get a better understanding of the LEGO system and become better builders. You can learn more at http://tinyurl.com/m8stze9 .
