Customer Review

on 16 January 2012
Familiarity with multi dimension Matrix and vector maths are required to understand the first third of the book along with a solid understanding of advance C++ syntax such as templates. Since the book relies heavily on authors own templates/generics library of classes data type etc. For me personally this just adds an extra layer of complexity to an already difficult area. I prefer all the basic concepts to be explained using the actual primtives (float int etc) the gl routines requires. Buying the kindle version was a big mistake too. Advanced syntax becomes hard reading with kindles layout manager rearranging code samples especially if your from an objective c background. Theres something odd in the matrix maths too, you can get odd results using his library. Or maybe I'm just not understanding the code c++ wouldnt be my first choice for an object c based device. Not for the faint hearted. But lets face it I've bitten off more than I can chew here. the samples show he knows his stuff. my biggest problem is the syntax and poor kindle layout neither of which are the authors fault
