Minecraft: The Unlikely Tale of Markus “Notch” Persson and the Game that Changed Everything, a book about the massively popular game Minecraft, will release Nov. 5, publisher Seven Stories Press announced.

The book was written by Swedish journalists Linus Larsson and Daniel Goldberg, who had unprecedented access to Notch. Jennifer Hawkins handled English translation of the Minecraft book.

Larsson and Goldberg compiled the book based on exclusive interviews and research. The book takes an intimate look at the life of Notch as he opens up to the journalists about everything from his childhood to the birth of Mojang.

Movie rights to the Minecraft book have already been sold with production set to begin sometime this year.

The publisher announced it is partnering with Mojang to include photos of player-made Minecraft creations in a full-color photo insert in the book. The duo will also be signing copies of their book at this year’s fourth annual MineCon, which will be held somewhere within the U.S.

Seven Stories Press will release a 256-page hardcover book priced at $21.95. Readers can pre-purchase the book now on the company’s official site. The first 300 orders will receive a copy signed by Larsson and Goldberg.

The Minecraft book was published last year in Sweden but the English edition features behind-the-scenes photos and images of the development team’s favorite creations as voted on by the fans.
