I found this book on amazon:
"Robot Kit: Robot, Autonomous Robot, Lego Mindstorms, Robotis Bioloid, Lynxmotion"

http://www.amazon.com/Robot-Kit-Autonomous-Mindstorms-Lynxmotion/dp/6130539584

I was quite excited at first and tried to see if the editor was a customer of ours but alas what disappointment.
Turns out there's a publication Betascript Publishing that has produced something like 24000 titles using the same pseudo editor names and the way they do it is they copy-paste stuff from wikipedia mostly and sell for $46 probably via some Amazon print-on-demand-API.

Incredible as it may sound, Amazon have removed the single customer review of the book that gave it one star and sarcastically described the lack of any meaningful value of this book other than a nice looking cover photo and good choice of title.
