The latest Mindstorms set, EV3, is more powerful than ever, and The LEGO Mindstorms EV3 Discovery Book is the complete, beginner-friendly guide you need to get started. Begin with the basics as you build and program a simple robot to experiment with motors, sensors, and EV3 programming. Then you'll move on to a series of increasingly sophisticated robots that will show you how to work with advanced programming techniques like data wires, variables, and custom-made programming blocks. You'll also learn essential building techniques like how to use beams, gears, and connector blocks effectively in your own designs. Master the possibilities of the EV3 set as you build and program: The EXPLOR3R, a wheeled vehicle that uses sensors to navigate around a room and follow lines; The Formula EV3 Race car, a streamlined remote-controlled race car; ANTY, a six-legged walking creature that adapts its behavior to its surroundings; SK3TCHBOT, a robot that lets you play games on the EV3 screen; The SNATCH3R, a robotic arm that can autonomously find, grab, lift, and move the infrared beacon; LAVA R3X, a humanoid robot that walks and talks. More than 150 building and programming challenges throughout encourage you to think creatively and apply what you've learned to invent your own robots. --

I wanted to do some research into robotics as a hobby, and I borrowed this book from the library. It is a well written and well-illustrated book, with a number of projects and "challenges" (projects to do on your own, with some hints for completion). This will be a good book for those getting started with LEGO Mindstorms EV3.
