This review is from: Physics for Game Developers (Paperback)
Not a bad book, but I couldn't help but feel that it had been written backwards! The theory builds up, but it isn't until quite late in the book that you have enough information to actually do anything with it. Ok, you can guess what to do, but it would have been nice to have a basic framework described near the beginning with the details being increasingly fleshed out as the book goes along.
Also, perhaps a personal preference - all units are Imperial, not SI - that means feet rather than metres, etc. I was also introduced to the unit of the 'slug', with which I had previously been entirely unfamiliar... and am happy to forget about.
It's also worth checking the book's website for errata, as there are quite a few. Not a bad book, but it made me want to rewrite it in a different order. Nice point: code is in simple 'C', which makes it very clear.
