There is a a lot of fantastic information, and these tutorials really elevate this book over so many others that I've looked at. However, the greyscale screenshots are really hard to read sometimes. I'd recommend getting the Kindle version instead.

I feel that the current illustration of, apparently, a man flailing in blood, does accurately represent how I feel about some of the changes in this version of Maya. However, it is informative (As these particular editions are), and the kindle edition has colored, magnify-able images.

I was considering to buy this book, but I borrowed one in nearby library first . Most greyscale pictures are not readable. In my opinion, the book is not worth the price, despite the useful information in the text.
