Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
To answer your questions: 1. This book is about Battle Bots. 2. Battle Bots (or BattleBots) are robots that fight each other until one is disabled. 3. Robot combat is very popular: No show on Comedy Central is more popular than the weekly BattleBots. 4. This is the first book ever on BattleBots. 5. Robot Riot introduces you into the world of these pulverizing pounders, battle chains, and spin bots -- and their fierce, take-no-prisoners creators. Battle on!

    Into robot destruction? GET THIS BOOK

    If you really like robots, and you really like destruction, you'll really love this book. I coulnd't put it down. The book was very well written with a twist of comedy along with guidelines on how to build a mean-machine, metal-munching robot. This book kicks BOT!!

    Don't Watch the Show Without It

    This is a great book written from the inside of the bot world. I attended the taping of Battlebots 4.0 in San Francisco, but I had trouble keeping track of which bot was which. If only I'd had this book! Now I've got a much better understanding of the bots and the people who make them. My only complaint is that there's no page-numbered index of the bots. I'll have this book with me whenever I watch the show. And I know at least two people who are getting this for Christmas. :-)

    A Fun Book!

    This book has the latest on the whole robot- fighting scene, with the names of the key builders and the championship bots. If you have seen the bots on TV, or wondered what people were talking about when they spoke of wedges, walkers, and spinners, here are the answers. It's well-written, and a fun read.
