This book is huge! It's probably the biggest 3D Studio MAX book ever written yet it is packed with useful information designed from the ground-up. If you're a beginner to the MAX series then I would advise getting "3D Studio MAX 3 Fundamentals" as it is aimed more at beginners. This goes into detail about scripts used to animate such things as realistic coffee in a cup. The CD, however, is a bit lacking: although it offers the standard files associated with the book's tutorials, it does not contain anything else in the way of help. It has a feeble attempt at including clipart, although this is totally pointless because it is all pictures of children and surfing, etc (i.e. stuff not in any way related to MAX).
