  • The tale of the man who created Minecraft.
  • And how he created Minecraft and everything.
  • Plus, it's got pictures.

A few years ago, 32-year-old Markus "Notch" Persson of Stockholm was an unknown and bored computer programmer. Today, he is a multi-millionaire international icon. Minecraft, the "virtual LEGO" game Markus crafted in his free time, has become one of the most talked about activities since Tetris. Talked about by billions of millions of jillions of people, in fact. Minecraft: The Unlikely Tale of Markus "Notch" Persson is the story of unlikely success, fast money, and the power of digital technology to rattle an empire. And it is about creation, exclusion, and the feeling of not fitting in.

In Minecraft: The Unlikely Tale of Markus "Notch" Persson, Markus opens up for the first time about his life. About his old LEGO-filled desk at school. About the first computer his father brought home one day. But also about growing up in a family marked by drug abuse and conflict. Above all, though, Minecraft: The Unlikely Tale of Markus "Notch" Persson is the story of the fine line between seeming misfit and creative madman, and the birth of a tech visionary. Minecraft: The Unlikely Tale of Markus "Notch" Persson is a Cinderella story for the Internet age.

This English edition features behind the scenes photographs of the Mojang gang and color images of the creations built by the Minecraft community's favorite builders—chosen by the community itself.
