Bought this, having no real knowledge of Blender at all.

This isn't a 'complete' guide by any means, so I have knocked off a star just for that, as that feels a bit misleading in hindsight. Where it does shine is in the easy to follow guide for each section, and I feel the book makes up for this deficiency elsewhere, as long as you are a beginner. The book itself is actually rather nice aesthetically, the pics are well done, and there are easy comments to show how to do each bit. I used the book more of a step by step tutorial, and I didn't know any of the menu interfaces or anything, and it got me using them correctly.

Basically its got me up creating a model, texturing it, I've also exported it and drawing it in OpenGL (that last part it doesn't touch on, but for me it shows what I have created is usable correctly). I'm using 2.60 so everything matches correctly with the examples, and I didn't get stuck at all. Some bits I haven't done in the book like animation or particles, but the chapters look like a thorough intro to them.

I would definitely recommend the book to anyone starting from scratch with blender. I would imagine however, if you already know the basics of navigation, how to have a reasonable stab at a mesh and textures etc, this book probably is a bit too basic for you.

If the title had been 'complete beginners guide', I would have still bought it, and given it 5 stars :).

Good book for understanding the interface and tools .yet to read to the end ! .clear and helpfull with good images but could be more room for improvement .some times they can run over things a bit to quickley. nether the less a book i recomend in your library for beginers learning blender.its worth the investment if you can get it for or under 30 squid

This was purchased for my son who likes to build computers and design games etc., can't say I know a lot about it but he seems very happy with this book.
