I've read lots of game design books and I think this is the best or second? game design book I ever read so far.
Author has a real world experiences in gaming industry and he explains really well. (fun ways)

Essential Computer Animation fast: How to Understa&hellip by John Vince
1 of 1 people found the following review helpful
I bought this book by mistake!! I thought this book is for programmer who wanted to know about computer animation system...
Anyway I read this book and I think... it will be good for student or people who doesn't know anything about computer animation.
Author described many things CLEARLY.(but not perfectly) It doesn't contain any mathematical stuffs and I think everyone can read this book easily and can have wide idea about computer animation.
The only thing I don't like is... it is a little bit expensive for this kind of book.
