Dan Brown's "How to solve the Rubik's Cube" Second Edition

Postby rubixcuber » Fri Dec 25, 2009 12:01 pm

Dan Brown (aka Pogobat) has created a second edition of  his famous 'How to solve the Rubik's Cube'. The original version, however, was criticized by many many speedcubers. Maybe that was the reason for his new edition... anyways its much more informative, easy, and 'interactive'. He set it up so you can skim through the steps and find the part where you need to learn.


 


Much much better than his old one in my opinion, and he still keeps the fun in the second edition.


 


I guess badmephisto's Beginner's method tutorial is for 'introduction to the world of speedcubing' and dan brown's both editions is for 'just solve the cube and have fun doing it'.

he calls cubies 'cublets' and i think it was pointless for him to make a new one. It's just simply not needed, there's too many out there already. Also, his method is the usual beginner method up until the last layer, which is EXTREMELY messed up. With the real beginner method, it sets you up to easily learn a 4-look last layer. I rated it 2 * :P

All Dan Brown wanted to do was show people how to solve the cube. He never said it was some cool method he discovered on his own. Only a few people discover their knowledge for themselves, many of us learn from someone else or some other source. Yet, once we know how to do something, does that make our knowledge any less useful just because our own mind wasn't the source of orgin?
