Essential Mathematics for Games and Interactive Ap&hellip by James M. Van Verth

This is an utterly brilliant book, I don't work in games but in non-realtime CG, and the focus upon the mathematics and techniques rather than the code samples is refreshing. The book covers pretty much all the vital bases, but if it isn't enough, a HUGE reference and further reading list is provided at the end.

I'm reading this book front to back, but it shines as a reference manual.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 9 May 2004
I've been a fan of heavy meal for some time now, but I've always wondered what the more extreme aspect of the genre. This book is a briliant introduction to the early nineties Norweigan scene as it hyped itself to the max through the grisly enterprises of Varg Vikernes and Oystein Aarseth et al. Full of the styles history, main characters, and deep explanations into why Scandinavia?
