R. Shamms Mortier great artist but bad writer
I have never seen or read anything from this author that is good in any way. He took a simple program and turned it into a nightmare I have been using Bryce for years (3 thru 5). I'm an advanced user and I couldn't make heads or tales of what he was even trying to say. If you want a good book that will start simple and work its way up the ladder get (Real World Bryce 4 by Susan Kitchens ) this is by far the best book out there and it works with 5 also not enough diffrence between 4 & 5 to let it bother you.

AN AWFUL, AWFUL BOOK
IT'S A SHAME THAT THIS BOOK IS THE ONLY ONE ON SALE DEALING WITH BRYCE 5. THIS BOOK IS WORSE THAN THE MANUAL THAT CAME WITH THE SOFTWARE (IF THAT'S POSSIBLE). THE INSTRUCTIONS ARE DIFFICULT TO FOLLOW AND THE WRITER TELLS US RIGHT OFF THE BAT HE WILL NOT BE DEALING WITH BASICS. IF WE DIDN'T NEED HELP WITH THE SOFTWARE WE WOULDN'T BUY THE BOOK IN THE FIRST PLACE. THE BOOK IS NOT WORTH THE MONEY AND THE AUTHOR SHOULD BE REPLACED WITH SOMEONE WHO CAN WRITE.

With the many good books out there related to Photoshop and other graphic programs it is a shame that this book is the only one available for Bryce 5. Someone ought to take this author aside and help him reduce his arrogant attitude related to teaching. It is not OK to tell someone who needs help that the authors instructions are to be at a level for experts and that he is not going to stoop so low as to explain fundamentals.
I rated this book as a 1 and would have given it a 1/2 star if such a rating existed.
I actually found the Bryce 5 instruction book that came with the software to be more helpful than this book.
