This was on my 15 year old grandson's wish list so I ordered it for him. He loves it and has already gotten some good tips for programming. He looks a lot up on-line but likes to have a book to refer to. This is just what he was looking for.

Probably one of the best, if not the best, of the GPG series. Excellent articles on SSAO and font rendering with complete source. Some of the subjects, like network and multiplier, are a bit lacking but they would require books of their own. There also a very good article about streaming assets with a working example and complete source code.
