Simply put, Lee's approach takes much of the pain out of setting up scenes in Vray. His explanations take you through the critical settings for different scene setups without getting overly technical. Combined with the scenes Lee provides, this book is great time saver. I bought the kindle edition to use on my ipad and I find the digital version with links very helpful, as you can bookmark pages.
I liked the fact that the author explains his background to help us understand how he managed to get where he is right now and that made me feel confident that this guy really knows what he is doing. Then he explains a lot of important details that are essential to create a very detailed scene, as well as some common mistakes that we should be aware of and I was impressed that I was actually making a lot of those mistakes so this book is helping me to improve the quality of my work. Also, when getting to the actual practice, the author illustrates a lot of visual examples to help us understand what he is trying to say and that is really good because I am that kind of person that needs to see a visual reference to fully understand what the people are trying to say to me and this author does it very good. And that's not all, I LOVED that when we are working on 3ds Max, there are images that fully guide you through the steps that are needed to achieve the final and absolutely beautiful render. As a side note, I originally don't use 3Ds Max because I was introduced to the 3D world in Maya, but as I mentioned before, this book has a lot of pictures to guide you through everything that has to be done and it makes it easier to people that can be considered beginners. I totally recommend this book.
Although very simple, since some features could have a bigger explanation and detaling, it's a good synthetic approach to vray in its basic features for creating simple day, night and interior scenes. I recommend it to beginners and intermidiate users.
The book is okay, and the content is somewhat useful, but the the author refers to a bunch of material that is supposed to be on the companion website, which just are not there.
