The Black Art of Xbox Mods Reviews
This book describes how to do anything and everything you could ever want with an xbox.

Very informative but not much here that you can't find on the internet already.
Just as expected Just as expected .... Zzz z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z zz
Good book I really enjoyed it. I like to learn new things and yes this was a good read. Awesomeness.
I get a kick out of Jonathan S. Harbours books. I enjoy reading them and I own several of them. He seems to really enjoy his job and that makes for a good read. He also seems to know quite a bit about what he's doing, which lends the reader confidence. Confidence enough to try things that may cost you money? We'll see...
This book is very helpful if you are contemplating making any hardware changes to your Xbox. My primary reason for buying this book was to replace my Xbox DVD drive which started giving me read errors about a year after I bought it. While DVD drive replacement is not one of the topics fully covered by the author, there are sections in the book that will help you get most of the way there and you can find the rest on the web. The author does cover installing a mod chip and upgrading the hard drive, and he does this very well. The book is full of illustrations and step-by-step instructions. Above all, the book helps you get more out of your Xbox while keeping it legal, as piracy is not condoned by the author, nor does he show you how to do anything illegal. This was definitely a good purchase for me.
