5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best books out there, 5 Sep 2010
This review is from: Blender Foundations: The Essential Guide to Learning Blender 2.6 (Paperback)
This is definitely one of the best books written about any graphical program. The whole complexity of Blender would demand similarly complex book about it. However, this book manages to present huge quantity of information in a shortest possible manner and still keeps it very entertaining and useful. In just about few hours from when you start reading you will have a great understanding of 3D in general and of Blender UI and how best to use it. Both of these topics are vast but author manages to introduce this in such a way that after few hours of reading and working with Blender you feel like you gained years worth of knowledge.

After this initial introduction you start building your project which takes you through the rest of the book. Again, you will be taken through a series of very difficult tasks in a way that is fun, educative and very condense. These tasks will cover all the aspects of Blender including modelling, materials, textures, ligthing, compositing, etc., and along the way you will gain even more insight in how best to use Blender's complex interface to minimize your work flow.

Another good thing about this book is that author promises to help you along the way, and says he usually responds within 24 hours if you have any questions. I didn't really expect that until I really did ask him something, and he responded within two hours - on Saturday :)
