    Computer graphics has been a growing hobby of mine for some time and I bought this book (at full price unfortunately) to fill in the gaps in my knowledge that had arisen as a result of being self taught. It is a useful text to anyone at my sort of level, that is to say intermediate beginner. Richly illustrated it is clearly aimed at showing the new user what can be achieved with computer graphics, and at this level I certainly enjoyed it. However it shows what can be done using the professional heavy weight applications like Photoshop, Illustrator, & 3D Max which exposes the book’s flaw. Most beginners do not have access to the sort of applications that this book focuses on, let alone actually use them so as a working instructional manual it does not work. However if you want a beautifully illustrated book that is very easy to read for inspiration, and to understand the basic principles of computer graphics then buy it, because at Amazon’s price it is excellent value

    The book is a little out of date re the first two or three chapters, but is a truly excellent book.
