Great Books

 

There are way more Lego-themed books than you might think.

Cool Robots, Cool City
and Cool Cars and Trucks are fun for everyone, but accessible to beginners.

The Unofficial LEGO Builder's Guide is a general reference guide for the avid builder; explaining techniques for successful building.

The LEGO Technic Idea Book series is for mechanically minded play, young and old. There are no words, just loads of great pictures and ideas.

Forbidden Lego is for the advanced builder with a bent towards the technical side.
