Default MEL Books

hello,

i was wondering what book or books you guys would recommmed for learning MEL. if there is one good one for multiple categories such as modeling and animating and rigging and any others that would be awesome other wise i'm interested mostly in modeling and animating. you guys are awesome if you help me out. i want to learn MEL. i don't thnk it would be hard to teach myself the language since i've seen some scripts before and i kinda understand them. i have C, C++, Java knowledge myself from my high school days and i still remember some of it. i even still have books from back then.


MANY THANKS to all that reply. :bow:

Haha, at first glance, I thought the title said Mel Brooks and I was like, "ooh, I love his movies!"
