Jeez, I spend all this time working on our book recommendations section, and even crosslink the related section at the top of each forum, and still people fill the need to ask for suggestions. Try this.

What's the standard recommendation?

the best beginning book i can think of is the "OpenGL Game Programming" url: http://glbook.gamedev.net also i would recommending you go out and get the blue book as well. The red book is great to and you can find it on this site for free!

Whatever you do don''t get the LaMothe series OpenGL Game Programming by Hawkins (CEO GameDev.net) and Astile (Myopic Rhino). Just kidding You should of course get the above mentioned book. It isn''t just from a couple of people who played major roles in bringing you this site, but also a good book.
