When I first got it I thought it was great, in retrospect I don't think so at all. It glazed over the math and a lot of the workings of OpenGL to the point that I had to relearn OGL practically from scratch. Some topics definitely have good coverage, but the book isn't very balanced.

ok, so are you saying skip this book completely?

anyway woodsman, that book looks like it doesn't cover nearly as much stuff as the other one


It really is a great book. Well written, and it starts slow enough for a complete beginner (to OpenGL) and gets to advanced topics fairly quickly, but slowly enough to understand if you have no previous knowledge.

Each chapter also has sample questions for you to try on your own, with all answers in the appendix.

At first I didn't really like it, but it's a nice book.
