For someone who has always wanted to build a real robot, but didn't know where to start, THIS is the book you've been waiting for! I loved the step by step approach that didn't leave you wondering how to get the job done. The technical drawings & diagrams were really clear and easy to understand. Even if you don't want to build the robot Williams has designed, the book is full of great info like how to make your own printed circuit boards, program your bot for ultrasonic room mapping and radio remote control. Whether you build the hexapod robot from the book or use the design concepts as a launchpad for your own creations, this is a sourcebook that no robotics enthusiast should be without!

Very impressive and thorough. Packed full of diagrams, schematics and photos. You can even see the robot walking with the flip book photos on the corners. Well worth the $20.
