if your interested in Deferred Rendering, then this is the book for you. It gave me a better idea what techniques Deferred Rendering\Shading use; its problems with antialiasing, the use of multiple lights, and shadows. Also, an enjoyable read.

Wide range of interesting topics, and with good content. Good value for money.
I had stoped buying the series some time ago, complaining that the articles where shallow and short. Well.. this is not the case any more!
I didnt dig too deep into the book yet, I only had it for a week now, but it looks very interesting and detailed!

There's several great examples on deferred rendering in the book. Mostly optimizations, but the chapter on deferred transparency was exceptionally useful.
