"[I]f you are looking for some fresh ideas, [LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT One-Kit Wonders has] 10 wonderful projects for teachers and FLL coaches to explore and to adapt to emphasize particular technology, science and math skills."
--LeGo-Bots Lady (;-p) V.Greene, The Robotic Realm

"The ten robots are a good starting point for creating robotics and inventions using the NXT kit and add a lot to the growing ideas behind the NXT robotics kits. The One-Kit Wonders book is a great addition to the NXT kit and well worth the cost of the book and then some with a great new set of robots to build."
--Jeff Gedgaud, Associated Content

"I was very pleased with LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT One-Kit Wonders. It provides hours and hours of entertainment and was fairly easy to use."
--Jill Hart,

"Unlike many books of this type, the authors intend to teach. The chapter on the drag racer talks about gear ratios and torque, the M&M sorter demonstrates programming around missing features and so on. Each project ends with a 'further exploration' section that suggests modifications or enhancements that could be made."
--Tony Lawrence,

"...a most necessary gift for anyone who receives the Lego NXT package."
--Ira Laefsky,
