Required Reading for Software Industry Execs


As a business person in the process of starting a software company, I found this book very useful. I use the word useful because it seamlessly weaves theory with practical advice. Although some of the concepts in the book are not novel, the way in which they are spelled out is. I find myself constantly revisiting chapters in the book and using them as a point of reference. It acts as a clear and constant reminder of best practices and the importance of solid, cost effective software development. It also provided me with the tools necessary to work more effectively with technical people and understand where they are coming from. It is required (I ask nicely)reading for my developers. I would recommend this to both technical and businesspeople.

A GEM for solid understanding of 3D math for starters to Pro


This is one of the best books that I have read for 3d math. It thouroughly explains math concepts in geometry trig and coding. At first I was skeptical with this book because most books take for granted that you know math concepts but this one explains it in detail.
I hope Fletch and Ian keep teaching young padawan learners of gaming like myself by making more books like this.
This book is a GEM and a must have!!

C++ Programming Language, 3rd Edition.


Even though lots of people said this is a very good book. But my feeling about this book is kind of mixed: lots of material are covered in this book, however, the writing style is not quite accessible. It seems to me that Mr. Stroustroup is mumbling to himself!
I learned C programming language by reading only "the book" by Kerninghan and Ritchie, and data strutures from Knuth's The Art of Computer Programming. But I just cannot learn C++ by reading only Stroustroup's book.
