    Can anyone recommend this?

    I found a book that looks PERFECT for what I want.....vectors, matrixes, quaternions, and all using C++. Anyway, head over here to see it. Can anyone recommend this book? I'll probably get it either way, but I'd still like to know. Thanks all !

    Are you ordering from Amazon, or amazon merchants? If from amazon...they will send it. I've ordered more than a 100 items rfom amazon and the merchants, and so far I had only one switched thing...and that was from a merchant. Still this is a way better, good transaction to bad transaction ratio, than on eBay!

    If you haven't ordered it, a better book imo is

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...lance&n=507846

    Eberly is a monster. The book is very very thorough also. It's a must have for any serious graphics programmer.
