I recommend this book to anyone interested in making computer games and wants a good start, this book will help you alot concidering it carries the cd with it, the game maker's apprentice is good for beginners or advanced game creators interested in learning more about the software. This book also shows examples of how to make the example games and brings resources such as the graphics and sound for them. To make games with game maker you need no coding experience or previous game creating experience all you need is this book and the software that comes along with it. If you give it a fair amount of effort you will most likely make pretty good games. The games can be educational or just plain fun, arcade, fps, 3d, platform,rpg, etc. 5 out of 5.
