In my opinion the "The OpenGL Programming Guide" aka the RED BOOK is much better, I own booth of this book and i prefer the RED BOOK

The only thing the SuperBible will teach you that RedBook won't is some Windows stuff.

I would just get sample code off the web to get yourself going with windows. Or even (shudder) use Glut.

IMHO, the RedBook is better.

this might be useful.

I bought the SuperBible for the Windows stuff and as a beginner to graphics programming it was very helpful. Now however, I wish I'd got both (and I will eventually) cos some things aren't very well explained in the SuperBible.

Maybe I just need to spend more time with it...
