    He's good, but the ones who impress me for Wincoding are Jeff Richter and Matt Peitrek any book or article by them is worth a read IMO

    John Carmack is an idol to anyone who plays 3D games... I mean the man is probably the #1 reason OpenGL is still alive and kicking

    Exactly. I dont even like OGL and I still respect what he does with it. Its like hes two steps a head of everyone else. People buy his _old_ crap and use it to make new games because its still better than what _they_ can do.

    I agree, he's very good. Read "Programming C++ Applications for Microsoft Windows"?
