The only short fall this book has is some of the chapters are based around the starting Metal template in xCode. This template changed between Xcode 9 and 8. To get around this I had to download an Xcode 8, start off a new project, and then open it in Xcode 9 so I would be able to push to device.
Unfortunately, this is not a book even for a beginner, because displaying a triangle, or cube you can get from the guide provided by Apple. Fortunately, I have the basic knowledge of 3D programming, so It took me very short time to finish the whole book, and I think I wasted my time.
It is sad; there is no other book available on this subject. The best advise I can provide you to look documentation provided by Apple.
