I really like this series of books but I have a couple of misgivings about this particular book. All the units are in imperial with no metric alternative. This massively slows me down as a European/ British user through unfamiliarity at using and inputting imperial measurements. I also find the instructions excessively go over basic commands however that is quite a fine line that would be hard to refine. Other than those two gripes this is an excellent book which has helped me learn 3DS Max from scratch.
