I really like this book. I just recently started writing games in C++, and this is my first book. I read six chapters in a week and found it is good reading. It starts off by helping you set up a game engine, then builds of that, creating games each chapter and introducing new concepts. I have been programming for 5 years leisurely, but know I want to break into the game programming business and start developing games for one of the major companies. To me this is a good first book and I would recommend it to others.
