A few months ago, Kevin Brothaler approached me via e-mail and asked if i could give him a quote for the book (yes, i feel like a “rockstar”). I ended up doing a tech-review and write the foreword for the book.
Kevin did an excellent job at condensing the somewhat beginner-unfriendly OpenGL ES 2.0 API into a nice little book, with a special focus on Android. While you won’t be able to write the next Crysis, it’s certainly a nice introduction to the subject matter, and i can recommend purchasing it. Kevin’s also a splendid guy and put out many free tutorials on OpenGL ES on his site learnopengles.com. You should support his book for this fact alone!
The books not yet on Amazon, but you can get it at The Pragmatic Bookshelf.
Finally, i’d like to highlight the fact that the publisher had no problem putting my name and the name of my book on the cover of Kevin’s book. I did not ask for that at all, they just did it. Awesome!
