Which of those two books is better to start with DirectX and shaders programming? · Introduction to 3D Game Programming with Direct X 9.0c: A Shader Approach · Special Effects Game Programming with DirectX Thanks :)

Definately the book idloco recommended.
Ditto. I've only read Special Effects Game Programming with DirectX, and it's not that great. And it's all DX8 and fixed function. And ISTR the author does horrible, horrible things like locking the backbuffer.

Thanks.

I've seen that book doesn't spend time explaining how "COM" works, but I'm interested in it as well. Do you know a further book to read after it, which explains how DirectX works?

Regards

There are several COM books, just search on amazon.com or something and read the reviews/previews. Or go to a bookstore.
