I picked up this book recently because it has been a long time since I did any math or physics at school or Uni. So far this book looks good. I've only read the first chapter on points and lines but Wendy manages to cover this topic quickly and keeps what could potentially be dry material interesting. The math is bringing back my memories of highschool maths classes. I'm keen to read and apply what I learn in the rest of the book to my game programming projects. - User:Orj
