4.0 out of 5 stars In depth and precise., 7 Feb 2008
This review is from: Ray Tracing from the Ground Up (Hardcover)
I purchased this book whilst doing a degree in Maths and Computer Science, so I have knowledge of both the fundamental requirements of ray tracing. The book gives very good descriptions of the problems that ray tracing needs to solve and the code provided is almost completely bug free. I found a few errors but they were very easy to fix.

Not for anyone who doesnt know anything about the c/c++ programming language, as the book does not give much reference to setting up the project to work on systems. The books website gives the code required to get the project started and has many images that are sometimes helpful when comparing results.

I highly recommend this book as i encapsulates many techniques that are used in ray tracing. More advanced techniques are left out, like Global illumination, but it definitely gives you a good place to start.
