great coverage


I've been poring over the book 'Core Servlets and JavaServer Pages' and I must say it's a most remarkable composition; a classic collection of almost all one would need to know to develop state-of-the-art web applications. The idea of covering the supporting technologies like HTTP, HTML, JDBC, etc. to the necessary levels of detail, so that developers can find out all the information they need from a single source is a master-stroke. I've read scores of technological books all these years, and haven't come across one that can hold a candle to CSAJSP, especially in terms of the explicit, lucid and complete manner in which the content has been presented.

Confirmation..finally!


It is great to read a big-picture viewpoint on large eBay businesses. The book provided insight into some of the things we are doing right...and some of the things we were doing wrong. Much more enlightening than having eBay staff ask 'what can we do to help you double your business?' Great job, Scot!

Title: 3ds max 6 Animation: CG Filmmaking from Concept to Completion (Consumer)
Publisher: McGraw-Hill Osborne Media
Authors: Barrett Fox
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
The best book by far......


Creating 3D animation is an extremely complicated proposition and Barrett Fox's take on CG filmmaking is the best book by far on this complicated process. "3DS MAX6 Animation-CG Filmaking from Concept to Completion" not only covers the basic step by step process of producing your CG film it also delves into the finer points of how to make your production more successful on an artistic level. This is the best presentation of how to marry the technical and creative sides of your project into a final polished film that I have yet come across. And believe me I have read most of them!
Another thing that's sets this book apart is that it goes through the creation of a particular project rather than a grab bag of unrelated scenes that comprise the examples in most CG how-to books. This really clarifies the work flow needed to produce your project in a logical and expedient way. Add to this the 3dmax, image, and animation files that are included on the enclosed CD-ROM and you have a comprehensive window into the CG filmmaking process that is worthwhile to digital artists from beginning to advanced. This is a great book and well worth the price.
