An Excellent book if you want to learn OpenGL., 18 April 2000
I'm a university student and that means I have to buy books. During my course I had to write a dissertation, foolishly I choose to write one on a topic relating to computer graphics. Anyone who knows anything about modern realtime graphics knows that OpenGL is the dogs dangly bits when it comes down to it. This book has let me (almost) painlessly learn the basics and the advanced aspects of OpenGL. It makes a good supplement to the excellent tutorial site hosted be NeHe ... and expands on a lot of the topics covered there.
Well worth checking out if you want to do some OpenGL programming. It's also worth noting that this, second, edition is actually cheaper than the first release.
