    OpenGL SuperBible

    Does anyone know if OpenGl SuperBible is a good book. I am thinking to buy one but there seems to have some totally different opinions on the book. any idea?

    The only thing the SuperBible will teach you that RedBook won't is some Windows stuff.

    I would just get sample code off the web to get yourself going with windows. Or even (shudder) use Glut.

    IMHO, the RedBook is better.

    Re: OpenGL SuperBible

    I bought the SuperBible for the Windows stuff and as a beginner to graphics programming it was very helpful. Now however, I wish I'd got both (and I will eventually) cos some things aren't very well explained in the SuperBible.

    Maybe I just need to spend more time with it...
