I have listed the BEST reference books I found during my adventures in Second Life.


Second Life for Dummies (Best Reference)

This is a great reference book.  It has pictures of the SL menus and steps to do a majority of things.  Shows steps to change your avatar’s appearance to a few simple 3D object builds.  It talks about making money or starting your own business in SL.   ($25)

ISBN: 978-0-470-18025-9


Creating your World  (Intermediate & Advance Builder Reference)

Build, build and build, this is the book.  Talks about limitations in 3D building, secrets and how to get the best look in clothing.  Also goes into the SL scripting language with examples.  ($40)

Comes with CD-R of Scripts & Templates

ISBN: 978-0-470-17114-1


Second Life, the official guide  (my first book)

This was my only book about SL a year ago.  It covers how SL changed over the years and covers a lot of the same help as the “SL for Dummies” book. Nice to have one Official book.   ($35)

ISBN: 978-0-470-09608-X
