Great book about the intricacies of low level game programming, 19 Feb. 2014
I'm still 25% into this book and as someone that wants to be a game programmer, I love it ! It explains all of the building blocks of modern games and, while doing so (and this is actually something I really appreciated), the authors share their personal experience with the reader. A small warning for beginners, you'll need some C++ background or else, you might not get the point of some concepts or they can be overwhelming, although, most of the components described here are language agnostic (but they still use C++ for the code examples so...).
I'm finishing a Game Development university course and when asked, I tell my peers that Sir Mike McShaffry and Sir David "Rez" Graham are the teachers we didn't had!
