Posted by Spike Radway at 2/5/2010 7:07 PM

A profoundly straight-forward and informative guide to quickly mastering and getting the most out of Google’s SketchUp. Bonnie Roskes years of experience in design and education are readily apparent in how the book is organized and presented. Like it’s title’s namesake: it is literally a volume of practical recipes that anyone can follow easily and without getting bogged down in techno babble and irrelevant details.

The book’s usefulness cannot be underestimated and was perfect for both novices and advance users alike. The simple to follow tutorials for solving and learning the many amazing abilities of SketchUp made learning as easy as making pie.

The color graphics liberally included throughout her book provide are useful and perfect for the visually driven users of SketchUp (a common sense detail clearly lacking in some other How-To Guides for SketchUp). As a bonus; in this digital age, O’Reilly has thoughtfully included a complete online version of this book through their Safari Books Online service for which the purchaser can access.
