I''ve read some of it, its indeed a good book, however it is quite expensive (even for game dev books), and it is some sort of "The best of all game developing books" (its a compilation of topics) which is not bad at all, but too expensive for a bunch of articles put together, ohh well, it might be so because of the hard cover, I would pay for a paperback edition though.

Yes I know that. My friend has both. I have the first, which is called Game Programming Gems, the second is called something different. Believe it or not, it goes by the name Game Programming Gems II.
