If you want to learn 3D modeling and animation design, but are unable to afford the Autodesk 3ds Max and Maya such kind of 3D modeling or animation software costing thousands of dollars, then the very popular, free, and open-source Blender is currently the best choice for you. However, the available books or any tutorials written for Blender have been always scarce, really not systematic, and incomplete all the time, until the day Blender For Dummies, 3rd Edition comes out.

It was specially written for Blender beginners by a Blender enthusiast Jason van Gumster from Turkey.
