The book details the aspects of Machinima in a variety of games; some I never even heard of before! There are enough tips, hints, and advice in this book to allow any person, beginner or novice, to feel confident enough to enter the world of Machinima. Oh, and the attached DVD was an incredible bonus! I never even heard of "Moviestorm", but it came free (yes, FREE) with the book. This is one book that any "Machinimaker" needs, no matter your skill level! :)
In the end, the title of the book really does accurately reflect the type of person that would get anything out of it. If you even know what machinima is, you're already far too advanced for this book to be of any use to you.
Machinima for Dummies is simple to understand, entertaining and if you only want to get one book on Machinima - this is the one.
