Great content for modders
I think the last review is a bit harsh, but a one line review? I guess the reason why there isn't any "real" data in it is because the person hasn't actually read the book. this book was written by the guy at gideontech.com, 1 person from pcmods.com and 2 other people. They all have their own case mod website so they are pros at this. A lot of the things in the book are not elsewhere on the net and were written just for this book as far as I can tell. The book covers all sorts of mods including how to build your own case out of a metal gas can, developing your own electronic gadgets (mansfield), lighting mods you never thought about, and mini ITX goodness from Ed. There is a ton of mini-mods. Really its a very thorough book and you can't just "surf the web" and get as much good information so quickly or in such a nice "gift" package. If you already build competition level case mods then yes I wouldn't recommend it to you, but if you think modding is fun then its a good book for you.

The layout is nice, but content is outdated in comparison to case mods you can find surfing the net.

This book rocks. It guides you through each part and really gives you an idea of what kind of work goes into a unique mod.
Not to mention my case is on the cover :-)
