About the Author
Jonny Gorden is an avid animator and character designer. In 1997 Jonny formed Zero Gravity Entertainment and created X-Men: The Ravages of Apocalypse, one of the first 3D games to use LightWave 3D.
Jonny continues to entertain kids. He recently spent nearly a year living in China working as Animation Supervisor for Chuggington, and he designed and helped to create Little Charley Bear. He currently spends most of his time writing and illustrating kids books, including the Fairy Tails series, but still has great fun with character animation.

With this book you'll learn more about the logics of how the program works; and it's great for newbies and experts - I don't consider myself an expert but I've been working with animation for over 10 years; and this book has provided me with techiques I hadn't developed properly and are really useful and time-saving.
Also, the book is very well written so it flows lightly - you learn and get entertained.
I've been a Lightwave user since 1996. I have purchased a lot of support materials in my quest to stay ahead of the curve. Jonny Gordon has written one of the best books I've read on the subject of rigging characters and animation. Something that has been lacking for Lightwave users for a long time. It get's straight to the point and would be a great asset to a majority of Lightwave users beginner to expert. I also recommend that you purchase volume 1 of Jonny's series for a more complete reference to Lightwave 3D's powerful character creation and animation tools.
I bought the Volume 1 and 2 en really took the time of reading it word by word. Underlining the most important things so i'll be able to use these books as a quick reference guide. Sometimes I just forget things and then I like to quickly return to my books for help ;-)
I know that a lot of you prefer some training DVD's above reading because it takes some time to get trough these books... But believe me, they are worth it. They get you trough the basics and then take you up to the next level. The CD that comes with this book also helps a great deal. You can go and analyse the settings of the examples.
I recommend this book to anyone who's thinking about character animation, even if you haven't got any knowledge of rigging. You have got to get this book...
