I've read couple of chapters so far & the author has done a neat job in introducing you to Lumion 3D layer upon layer. It'll really help if you are familiar with 3D modeling software jargon. In the first couple of chapters the author explains how you can import the 3D models, organizing the content in the 3D space and manipulating them with great illustrations. I particularly like how they labeled most of the images so as to explain what each of the component means. If you really want to master Lumion 3D interact with the software while going through the book & please do experiment with stuff instead of just plainly reading the book.
Also author unveils many keyboard shortcuts through out the book (make a cheat-sheet), it'll really help you increase your efficiency. Don't worry if you are not into 3D modeling you'll find many free 3d models on the internet.

The author does a terrific job at covering all aspects of the Lumion workflow. The book is organized very well and is presented in an order that makes sense for most people working in Lumion. I reviewed the eBook version over the past week. I love the eBook version because I can search as well as go to the table of contents and click on a particular subject I'm wanting to know more about. I really enjoy the format of each topic as well. The topics are organized with a summary at the top of each "recipe", steps to prepare, and then a step by step to execute the particular task with screen images where necessary. At the end of each "recipe" is a section called "There's More" where the author usually goes into a more in-depth or behind the scenes look at some additional things that can be done with each task. A more advanced user type explanation of additional things that can be done.
In all, I found this book to be extremely good at covering the whole Lumion process. Giving the reader an in-depth study of the software and possible uses. Like most creative software, you are only limited by your own imagination and creative ability at harnessing the power of the tool. Great book that I highly recommend to all levels of Lumion users!
I do really recommend this book if you want to get fast and easy-to-follow guidance on architectural rendering with Lumion.
This book is definitely NOT for beginners. The Beginner book in this same series is a better place to start, although again the version and instructions for that book is also outdated.
