The full color format is fabulous! Every simple machine is displayed with all the steps and a graphic part list. Awesome!
For FLL teams that need inspiration and practice on building attachments, this will be invaluable. There is also information on using the sensors.
Of note, this book is entirely simple machines (attachments) for your EV3. If your students need direction on attaching these assemblies and creating an entire bot, I'd recommend The Art of Lego Mindstorms EV3 Programming by Terry Griffin and The Lego Mindstorms EV3 Discovery Book by Laurens Valk.
In contrast most of the things built in Isogawa's book are explained in just one or two picture frames. Everything is a mechanism, beautifully and simply presented to invite you to want to understand the ideas at work and experiment and tinker yourself. My son started flipping through the almost entirely visual book on his own and was immediately drawn in. The first thing he built were a few of the designs for changing motor rotations into 'lifting' motions. Before very long it felt like both of us had crossed a threshold into a new world with endless new possibilities, learning and exploration ahead.
It is said that the Japanese are known as master craftsmen and for the beautiful functional simplicity of their designs. This book proves it so.
Ok, a few reasons why I like it so much.
First rate photos
all parts can be made out of the kit
Lots of useful mechanisms
Well built strong ideas
Good pictorial representations of gear ratio's, and Lego geometry. Lots of great mechanisms to inspire your creativity. No text though, so you need to be comfortable with deciphering ideas from pictures.
It is not focused on the programming side of Lego Mindstorms, but the mechanism side. It provides many examples of the mechanical subassemblies that are possible with the Lego Mindstorms kit.
The EV3 idea book gives you mechanical building blocks, and some important mechanical principals that enable your robotic ideas to successfully come to life.

Yoshihito is a Lego genius.
Could have been better if there were more ideas for vehicles but I guess they are in another book of him. Will try them.
Este libro está basado en las piezas de LEGO MINDSTORM EV3 set home edition #31313. Yo tengo el EV3 education pero me da igual, vale para enseñar y coger ideas (y seguramente podré desarrollar muchas). El libro está totalmente centrado en pequeñas ideas para entender el potencial que pueden dar unos motores y unos sensores combinados con las piezas de montaje LEGO.
Decir que no es el primer libro que tengo de esta editorial "NO STARCH PRESS", ya tengo "THE ART OF LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 PROGRAMING", muy bueno y basado en la programación del EV3. Link: https://www.amazon.es/gp/product/1593275684/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Non ci sono spiegazioni scritte per cui non è necessario sapere l'inglese.
Tutti i libri di Yoshihito Isogawa sull'argomento sono ben fatti per cui consiglio l'acquisto a chi è appassionato di Lego Mindstorms e non solo.
El libro es muy bueno, pasta dura, buena calidad en las hojas,no esperen instrucciones de texto, todo es en base a figuras y fotografias de los ensambles asi que a ensamblar y sacarle provecho a Lego M.
