New SketchUp books for interior designers

Judging by last year's SketchUp Pro sales numbers, it's pretty clear that interior design is one of our fastest-growing markets. It's about time, too—between the piles of content on the 3D Warehouse, the availability of awesome photo-rendering plugins, LayOut and SketchUp's all-around awesomeness, there's plenty for interior designers to love.

And now there are books, too! Adriana Granados is an architect and interior designer who happens to know an awful lot about SketchUp. She's written a series of mercifully short, to-the-point manuals collectively titled Google SketchUp for Interior Design & Space Planning that are available for sale online. The books are printed in full color and I think they're really helpful.

Check pricing before you buy anything. Textures book is listed at 29 clams with text described as 46 pages. Really? That's kinda rich no?

The author explains in a really simple, yet very professional manner. It is to the point, and one does not have to read 20 pages as in other books in order to learn how to do the most basic thing. Great book!

Wondering if this series would also be useful to those of us who haven't yet upgraded to sketchbookpro?

Yes, every lesson is developed under the premise to be used with the Free or Pro version. A tag appears when there is some explanation related with the Pro version.
