THe dude who rights these "game programming for teens" is a mastermind...THe 2nd edition is just the first edition with the knowlegde applying to a newer version of Blitz Basic..Blitz plus i think. Well anyways his books never leave u in the dark and teaches everything he could teach...after the books over with you would be able to make Mario-styled games like a pro ..4 stars on this one
While I don't have this book I do have the first Ed. I already knew a fair amount about programing from my calculator and from some very simple C++ so the examples that this book showed me weren't that bad but if you know nothing some of them can make you think a little. The book really did inspire me to go forward and purchase Blitz3d from blitzbasic.com

I think this book was really good. Actually I started game programming because of this book. for that reason I'm pritty good at programming in blitz basic,+,and 3d.
I am a teen and I must say that it isn't really for teens. Its for 12 year olds, or even lower. I don't want to be sad to the guy who wrote it, it is good in its own way, but I can understand most books which aren't classified as teen, and I can make better games than what he showed. That is just my opinion, maybe other teens will find it useful.
