    OpenGL book

    Hi

    I was wondering if anybody could recommend an OpenGL book..I dont want a game programming book..but an OpenGL for total begginers in the language..i mean somebody who hasnt had any experience with it!
    I dont want an OpenGL that deals with only one OS..but a general language book..like alot of the c++ books.

    Cheers

    Alex

    I have the OpenGL Programming Guide by Mason Woo. I bought it for a module years ago and haven't read it since. Shame really, I wouldn't mind doing a bit more 3D stuff...
