When de Byl referenced Betty Edwards' classic "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain," I knew I had found something different. de Byl explains all the logic and process necessary to create and control logic in a game in a clear and forthright manner. Even when the topic turns to those bits of high school math the reader has likely long forgotten, her writing style makes it easy for the reader to get the gist and move on to the mechanics of the task at hand.
Programmers who already have game programming knowledge and simply want an introduction to Unity may find this book slow-moving or obvious. Any of the other books on Unity, which emphasize code and action over theory, would be better suited. For the programmer who has been trying to dig into game programming and Unity but felt lost in the code, here's the book you've been looking for.
I will say this, the chapter on AI alone makes the book worth the purchase. Very clear, concise explanations.
