2.0 out of 5 stars Kindle Edition is a rip-off, October 8, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Essential Mathematics for Games and Interactive Applications: A Programmer's Guide, Second Edition (Kindle Edition)
This is a great book, however, with the Kindle version being priced only 5 dollars less than the hardcover, one would expect that you would get the same value.

However, you do not, as the CD-ROM that is included with hardcover is not included with the kindle edition. This is an issue, when for instance, you look up line segment to line segment, and find out that source code isn't listed in the book to save space. This doesn't make the book worthless, but it makes it pretty worthless.

If you are thinking about getting the Kindle edition - don't. Get the hardcover edition instead.

This was brought to my attention about a month ago and I've been trying to work out how to handle it. For now, if you contact me at jim@essentialmath.com with some confirmation that you've purchased the book I can send you the contents of the CD. In the future it will most likely be available at the website www.essentialmath.com in some form. I apologize for the inconvenience.
