Rating: *** (Disappointing)

Pretty meaningless book about the creation of Minecraft and some data about its creator. Doesn't really give you any real insights and make Notch a very hollow person.

It could have been worse, but I wouldn't spend any money on it, as you may find most of the info by performing some searches on the Internet.
