I found a book that looks PERFECT for what I want.....vectors, matrixes, quaternions, and all using C++. Anyway, head over here (http://www.booksmatter.com/b1556229119.htm) to see it. Can anyone recommend this book? I'll probably get it either way, but I'd still like to know. Thanks all :D !

idk, but $49.95 isn't bad for a 400+ page book...

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

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

I've already ordered the book, but that doesn't mean I can't get both. Thanks :D .
