    I haven't read that one but I've just ordered the Unity 3 Blueprints book (http://www.deeppixel.com) that came out this week (disclaimer the links below are my personal amazon affiliate links):

    I also recently heard about the book mentioned above by darkmobius -- Unity 3 Blueprints. It sounds really good and it would be the most up to date. I'm thinking about getting it myself to complement the videos here at 3DBuzz.

    Looks like the Unity 3 Blueprints uses Javascript, instead of C# though
    (At least the 1 sample project I downloaded does)

    The description does say it is all Javascript. Unfortunate but will be interesting to see what I can learn from it. Maybe part of my challenge will be to rewrite it in C#.

    Is there any web site, that you could convert Javascript to C#?
