I found this book usefull for a beginners. Advanced users of Max can find here some new tricks and info. But, f.e. nice pictures on the book cover shows a robot, face, starship and some building. I expected, that there will be some tutorials: how to model them. But there isnt any. Color studio contains about 32 pages, but most of the pictures doesnt show result of you work based on tutorials in this book. This book is good combining it with some book from Joan A. Bell
Fun and Educational!
