A completely unique and in-depth look at the creator of Minecraft, Markus "Notch" Persson, and his rise from unknown computer programmer to multi-millionaire international gaming icon. Minecraft, the "virtual Lego" game Markus crafted in his free time, has become one of the most talked about activities since Tetris. Talked about by tens of millions of people, in fact. It is the story of unlikely success, fast money, and the power of digital technology to rattle an empire. And it is about creation, exclusion, and the feeling of not fitting in.

Here Markus opens up for the first time about his life. About his old Lego-filled desk at school. About the first computer his father brought home one day. But also about growing up in a family marked by drug abuse and conflict. But above all it is the story of the fine line between seeming misfit and creative madman, and the birth of a tech visionary.

Minecraft: The Unlikely Tale of Markus "Notch" Persson and the Game that Changed Everything  is a Cinderella story for the Internet age.

This is a biography so obviously it is not going to help anyone play minecraft or be anywhere near as exciting as the game. It is written in an informal style and not a difficult read so I'd say the intended audience is probably interested parents/adults or mature kids. Some nostalgia for adult gamers and basic philosophical considerations for coders, but nothing technical.

An interesting and well written book, but more directed at gamers and coders, not so much the general public unless one is a Minecraft fan. Not exactly an enthralling read, but mildly interesting.
