On Thursday, I was reading David Weller's blog. He mentioned the book Physics for Game Programmers. I thought, “Physics. Games. Programming. What's not to love?” And since I started my vacation on Friday it seemed like it might be a fun book to read, so I decided I should pick it up. Well, when I got home that day, there was a package from Apress with the book inside. It seems that since they liked the review I wrote, I'm now on some sort of list. It's a good list to be on!
Of course, this does raise some interesting ethical issues: if I hate the book and say so, will they stop sending them to me? Hopefully I won't have to find out: so far the book is good. And I haven't even gotten to the chapters entitled “Explosions” or “Lasers” yet. :)
Update: my full review of the book is here.
