    Between 2 books

    I'm looking at these two books. Which should I get....I'm leaning towards "OpenGL Game Programming".

    OpenGL Game Programming w/CD
    OpenGL SuperBible, Second Edition (2nd Edition)

    I recommend OpenGL: Game Programming if you are just starting with OpenGL.

    I ordered the superbible and I was disappointed. Not only does it teach you very little in a haphazard manner, it uses void main frequently and I was forced to throw it into a fire.

    So I would recommend option #1, at least the author knows what he's talking about.
