Discount Bounce, Tumble, and Splash!: Simulating the Physical World with Blender 3D :>>> limited time offer!
This book is well written and beautifully illustrated. That high illustration quality is more important than you might think as in other Blender books the images are so poor it is hard to read the many many settings that are required to work through the tutorials.
I found this book to not be kidding that it isnt aimed at beginners (it seems there is no Blender resource aimed at a thorough understanding of the interface). It would have been nice if they had mentioned that on the front or back cover instead of page 16 in the introduction. It took me thirty minutes to decipher what was meant by "Create your first texture for your ocean surface material and map it using the Empty object". While all the tutorials seem to work, sometimes too little is mentioned about why you are doing certain things. Again, if not a Blender expert expect it to take a long time to get through each example. I suppose you will learn in the event you are successful, but I was sorely tempted to give up in certain cases.
