The Cinema 4D 9/9.1 Handbook
In this article, CreativeCOW.net contributing editor Todd Groves reviews The Cinema 4D 9/9.1 Handbook (Graphics Series) by Adam Watkins and Anson Call and published by Charles River Media; Book & CD-Rom edition, 426 pages, Copyright 2005, ISBN: 1584504021 and writes, ''...the moment I dove into it, I soon breathed a sigh of relief. Adam wastes no space between the front and back cover.'' and ''Though Adam indicates that The Cinema 4D 9/9.1 Handbook is 'best for beginners' most any user of Cinema 4D of any level of expertise will most likely find useful and helpful information inside the covers of this book''
