Great Start with CUDA, 16 Dec. 2013
While this book does assume a familiarity with C/C++ and object-oriented programming, it's a straightforward and easy book to follow. The provided code is explained well and without unnecessary jargon. CUDA and GPGPU programming is, in itself, remarkably straightforward, but unlike many of the online material I found before buying this book, it actually takes the time to explain what's going on, rather than forcing the reader to decipher someone else's uncommented code. A worthwhile purchase for anyone looking to get started with CUDA.
This is also my first programming book bought on Kindle; the format works brilliantly and it's more manageable to have my Nexus 7 propped next to my laptop while I'm working rather than having to wrestle with a lump of dead tree that moves of its own accord far more than a dead thing should!
