New SketchUp 8 books from Bonnie Roskes

The shelf of books about SketchUp 8 is getting heavier, I’m happy to say. Bonnie Roskes is the author of the very first SketchUp book, and has now also written the most recent. In fact, no one’s written more publications about SketchUp; if you count her excellent books for kids and educators, there are dozens. I honestly don’t know how she does it.

A lineup of Bonnie Roskes’ newest books

Bonnie’s latest additions to my library include:

  • An update to her popular “Hands On” series that covers version 8
  • A revised edition of her Student Workbook
  • A Delta book to fill you in on the differences between SketchUp 7 and 8
  • An overhauled tome about LayOut 3

All of Bonnie’s books are available as PDFs or printed copies, and they’re all for sale on her 3DVinci website. For students and teachers, she also has a Project of the Month subscription where three fresh, hot projects are delivered monthly to your inbox. I never miss ‘em.

Congrats on your new books, Bonnie. And if you get the chance, do you think I might be able to borrow the keys to the time machine I assume you have parked in your garage?
