I wrote a chinese chess game with it

this book teach all u need to write a game in c++/c. (animation,artificial intellingent,sound,2d graphic,3d graphic,mouse control,joystick,utilizing directx,optimize speed,...and lot more).in another word,it is very complete.the xplanation is clear.
the bad side:the game example is not written in object oriented fashion or design in so. u have to figure out urself how to make the necessary adaption.
the good side:u can rely on this one to get to know at least 95%of what u need.it is written by a professional game programmer.he know his stuff well.
The project was actually my thesis. i managed to finish the game in less than 2 month.

unbelievably irritating

this book might be useful if it weren't for the authors' seemingly implacable desire to be funny, which they are not. almost every sentence has some superfluous witticism in parentheses (usually with an exclamation point!). really, if you cut out all the ribaldry the book would be about 200 pages shorter, which would be a blessing because the reader might actually learn what she was setting out to learn. i do not recommend this book, except for people as retarded as the authors (in which case, they will probably not learn HTML because they'll actually be enjoying the sad attempts at humor).

Touches on basic concepts of engineering

An industry standard that no software professional can claim to be well-read without.
I was pleased to see (finally) the addition of two chapters on Formal Methods in Software Engineering. This was an unfortunate omission in the third edition that is now corrected.
The price is a bit overinflated, as with most texts on the subject.
Makes for an excellent companion, when compared and contrasted with other current industry texts.
