Hi,

I'm interested in buying this book:
Interactive Computer Graphics: A Top-Down Approach with OpenGL (3rd Edition)

http://www.aw-bc.com/info/angel/computergraphics/index.html

I'm looking for a book that goes deeper in computer graphics than the API teaching books, and this one called my attention.
I know this is not the latest edition. This book is from 2002.
I have found it for ~US$ 10.00 (with shipping to Brazil included) and am considering to buy it.

Could anyone that have this edition tell if it (this edition) is up to today's standards?
Do you think it is worth it?

Thanks in advance!

Bump,

nobody else has or cares for this book? :(

With just a glance:
Fixed-func only. Thus: not worth. Unless it happens to teach some of the still-relevant stuff nicely.
