"This book takes his story and gives you a closer look. You learn about the man behind the game. His childhood, his family, the growth of his company and the lives of the people who work there. It doesn't just give you the big enormous, glamour-filled cut scenes that you read about on the Internet. This book gives you the pixels, the details."
"I have been following Minecraft closely for over three years, and yet this book consistently surprised me with new insights into the game's development. It focuses on the human story behind all those pixellated blocks. I have a new respect for Notch's accomplishments with Minecraft and for all the hard work that the Mojang'ers have devoted to making the game such a phenomenon. This book offers a fascinating and honest peek into the mind of the man who made Minecraft a reality."
-Joel Levin, Teacher and one of the creators of MinecraftEdu

You'll feel like you're sitting down across from the real Markus "Notch" Persson as he tells you his most personal drives, ambitions and recollections. One man single-handedly created a hugely popular genre of interactive entertainment. This book recounts exactly how that happened in the most personal and complete way possible. In this work, Markus "Notch" Persson has revealed everything about the events that led to an international super-phenomenon. The resulting story will fascinate and inspire."
