    best opengl book?

    What is the absolute best OpenGL book to learn the OpenGL graphics API for Windows machines?

    Is it the OpenGL SuperBible? or the "Red Book?" or one that I am forgetting.

    Thanks,
    -Vic

    I have the OpenGL superbible, and I love it.
    The only thing with DL'ing a book is that you don't get a cd with it.

    Yes well, you are luckily paying in $ and not in R which comes up to R500.00 more or less. Big hole in the pocket. But I think a lot of effort was put into the book, and I'm happy to pay for it. It's money well deserved. Just my personal opinion.

    I hate switching beetween electronic book reading/compiler use...

    a book is made to be read on your knees, not on a computer screen.
