Then this book arrived. We are up and running, and my son is engrossed and so am I. The author gives terrific detail, and has small projects scattered through each chapter to help develop understanding of each of the features. We work through a few pages each evening, and do one or two projects (e.g., program the EV3 to do a figure 8). These projects are perfect.
As to the educational version vs the home version..... I splurged and got the expansion set. It turns out that this just has a lot of Technics-type structural pieces. It does not have new motors or sensors. The educational packs has all of the motors and sensors of the home version with two exceptions: the remote control sensor and related beacon. I got those thru the lego site. There may be a few add'l pieces that we'll need in the future to build all of the projects in this book, but we are 1/4 the way thru and haven't found them.
I'd also refer you to the book's website, which has a lot of useful information. The author has also kindly responded to specific questions (relating to education vs home versions), and has been quite helpful. So...can't recommend this more enough. I recommend it to all home users as well as school clubs.
It did help the tag along Mom understand this robot but it is very detailed and some of it needs more attention then I could give it at that time.
It would be the perfect handbook for any gifted and talented parent and student as well as teacher. It is worth the read. It is worth the purchase.
Great book for learning how to use your EV3 and for learning how to program.

As an introduction to EV3 building and programming this book is the best.
Clear and concise instructions for building wheeled and walking robots.
Full of interesting projects with great quality building pictorial instructions and easy to understand (for a beginner like me) programming instructions full of extra "Discovery" tasks to to help reinforce your understanding of the programming method.
I was very pleasantly surprised at how thick this book is - full of cool stuff to keep you interested.
You get lots of book for your money - well worth it.
I'm really pleased that I chose this book.
If you've got the Lego EV3 core kit LEGO 31313 Mindstorms EV3 and want to learn more about bulding and programming then this book is a must have.
Hope this review was of use.
Seeing as Lego include absolutely minimal information with the EV3 kit and there is a distinct lack of structured tuition about the thing even on their own site, a decent beginners book is really needed and this is it. It is very clearly written and serves as an essential guide in the early stages giving detailed explanations and projects.
I think that it is almost an essential purchase with the kit - pity Lego don't include such a book in their kit considering how much they charge for it!
