4.0 out of 5 stars OpenGL 4.3 in an 800 page book
FYI. I'm a Linux user. There was an important "How to build" file missing in the code samples. I wrote to the publishers about this a week or so ago. No reply yet.

As a book, it's got a lot of meat in it. That is the best part. As for being able run the examples, somewhat disappointing. The code was tied into a Framework, in which no-one has interest...

3.0 out of 5 stars Does the job
But the writing style is a bit laboured. And while it claims to cut straight to the meat of the subject, this seems to take a surprisingly long time. Good for reference but I suspect there are quicker introductory texts out there.

4.0 out of 5 stars OpenGL 4.3 in an 800 page book, 20 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
FYI. I'm a Linux user. There was an important "How to build" file missing in the code samples. I wrote to the publishers about this a week or so ago. No reply yet.

As a book, it's got a lot of meat in it. That is the best part. As for being able run the examples, somewhat disappointing. The code was tied into a Framework, in which no-one has interest. The subject of "Tessellation Parameters" was poorly explained - and overly complicated - for something which was (discovered researching on-line) fairly easy to understand. In the paperback version (which I got) the colour pictures are in gray scale (excluding a few glossy pages in the middle of the book).

This book covers a lot of stuff, and hats off to the authors. Expect 4/5ths of your expectations and you will be content with this tome.

Hope that helps.
