What book on blender would you recommend to start with?
I don’t know any beginners book but if you’re from Germany (or speak german) check out the video2brain beginners DVD. It’s definitely a great introduction to Blender!
Blender Basics- 3rd Edition
Classroom Tutorial Book
That is a good one. I think a few things changed since then but if you get stuck you can always ask here. Just do a search first to see if it has been asked before.
