Customer Review

on 11 July 2008
I would love to give this book five stars - the written content really is very good. It makes no claims to be a complete manual and what it does cover is more than a beginner needs to get started.

Examples are clear and the book is sufficiently modular in its composition that you can dip into the bits you need for reference - you do not have to read, understand and inwardly digest every page before you can do anything.

It's not expensive, it's easy to follow and it's very, very informative and it would be a five star book if it weren't screen shots. As any blender user knows, the interface is large and complicated and attractively designed in muted tones. So WHAT ON EARTH where the designers thinking when displaying them in tiny 5cm wide boxes? The paper on which the book is printed exacerbates the problem as its rough finish (nice normally) means the image reproduction comes out rather dark - flattening all those nice muted colours even further.

Fortunately, as I said, the text normally is clear enough to suffice and I still would heartily recommend this book. Just a shame about those images...
