Review:

Sams Teach Yourself 3ds Max in 24 Hours by Stewart Jones is the perfect book to start an artist who has never used 3ds Max and is new to 3D. Stewart has put in enough detail and challenges to give readers a solid grounding in techniques while leaving room to explore on your own. Stewart writes with humor, making something that could be dry interesting and fun to read. I enjoyed going through the book and even picked up a few tips along the way that I didn’t know in Max. I would recommend the book without hesitation to students and artists looking for a great start to quickly feel accomplished instead of frustrated with all aspects of 3D production in 3ds Max 2014.”

--Brad Clark, Cofounder, Rigging Dojo.com
