Just two details about this money grab.
The book is just like an illustrated catalog, no instructions , but all "ideas" partly require a special shaped bricks, so your kid has to be super creative to figure out how to put brick together and in the same time to achieve it with generic, standard shaped bricks. It felt like you're looking at fantasy creations you can't experience for yourself.
Totally useless for what it was intended to be used for.
Save your money. Save yourself and your kids from frustration.
FYI- it's great for ideas but doesn't have specific instructions on putting them together
I saw there were others on sale so I made an attempt at putting some links in. Hope that's helpful!

It felt like you're looking at fantasy creations you can't experience for yourself.

The book is just like an illustrated catalog, no instructions and all "ideas" require "special shaped bricks", so your kid has to be super creative to figure out how to put all bricks together and it's absolutely not possible to do it with standard, generic shaped bricks.

Agreed. This book is a total waste since there are no instructions. Its a glorified catalog. Should be free.

They don't require special bricks, they require the ability to improvise. Lego is aware that no two people have the same assortment of pieces, so they have to keep instructions vague enough to communicate the idea. It's up to the builder to figure out how to make it with what they have.

Criticizing something for encouraging creativity and problem solving makes no sense to me.

It's funny, I had to scroll back up and follow the link to see where you got the impression that this was an instruction book. Could you point me to that description?
