Read this book some yers ago and got aha experience on how 3d computing works. of cause now this book out of date, but the author did a real good explaination. So I really recommendat 3. edition of this book XNA 4.0 After understand XNA, maybee can start study directx.
Not finish reading yet. but what I have read is very good written, 10 times better wrtten than foolish norway books. I studied assembly 25 yers ago in university. Really enjoy reading about assembly again
