However, as other reviewers have noted, the 4th addition of Realtime Rendering is a joke in terms of print quality. After reading other reviews, I didn't think it would be that bad, but it literally does not compare to the 3rd edition I have sitting on my shelf. Really, it doesn't compare to ANY OTHER TECHNICAL BOOK I've bought in the last decade. Images are grainy and low resolution, color accuracy is poor, the TEXT IS NOT CLEAR (come on!), and the paper is so thin that just lightly turning pages can easily tear it. Compared to the previous edition which I've owned for years, I doubt this book will stand up to just a single read through. And when you put the two side by side and open up to similar pages, its just depressing.
I mean, seriously, I have many other books by CRC Press and they're usually top quality. I don't know why this one is so astronomically different.
Its unfortunate I have to give this book a 1 star review, I really have relied a lot on this series throughout my career as a professional software developer. But this book is absolutely not worth $89 + tax. If you want one of these, consider the 3rd edition. If you need the latest info, perhaps try the e version for half price. I may keep mine since I already have it and I'm reading through it. But at its current price and quality, I cannot recommend anyone else bother with this.
It's a shame because this is the best book for realtime rendering. If the ebook has color images I rather buy it and print it myself.
