This book is the Real World of VFX. Every chapter is so useful that to this day I glean insight from them all. Read it, absorb it, do it, and repeat!
I am a visual effects instructor and thought I had actually found a definitive volume for my beginning to intermediate students. In fact, upon initial review (I read the book, cover to cover), I was fully convinced that this book was it.
Clearly, the author knows his stuff, and conveys his knowledge to the beginning to intermediate VFX artist exceptionally well; very deserving of a 5-star rating, IMO.
Upon closer examination of the Bonus Content, i.e. the practice files, the book revealed itself to be virtually useless. The practice files are an empty promise! They are merely the book's publication images, in CMYK. While the examples that the author illustrates are very good, there is nothing available for the student or user to "Follow Along with" as described in the book's introduction.
Certainly, a resourceful student (or instructor) could create or otherwise acquire his or her own similar examples, but at a published price of $65, one would expect this book to deliver on it's claim of functional examples.
In the end, my stark criticism may be due to an honest oversight by the publisher and/or the author, but the book has been available (and in my hands) for a few months, and I have not seen any update to the downloadable content. I have repeatedly checked both the author's site, which seems to be a work in progress, and the publisher's site.
I hope that this matter will be remedied in the near future, until then, be aware that you will be paying a premium for non-existent materials.
I’m impressed with just how much information is in this single book.
