3D Game Programming for Kids
Perhaps the most important of these is motivation."
He says that this is a book that doesn't teach you to program, instead it provides things that you want to do that need you to know how to program and it explains those things as it goes. Sometimes it gets the level wrong and you think - "why explain this here" or it doesn't go deep enough at a point where you think that this would be a good place to get some theory across. You have to put up with this as this isn't a theory-oriented book that goes through the standard motions of learning a language.
His final conclusion:
"Oh and did I mention it's a lot of fun."
Author: David Sawyer McFarland
Rating the book as 4 star, Ian Elliot says that:
Author: Brad Dayley
Ian's conclusion is:
"Overall I liked this book. There are enough helpful boxouts pointing out things you might not have realized to make it useful to the intermediate jQuery programmer as well as beginner. It isn't going to replace a big book of words, but it is handy to have around."
Author: Jon Duckett
Ian Elliot described this as
" a very unusual book and its approach will only suit the complete beginner with a limited technical background. This is not a book for programmers and certainly not for experts. It makes things look simple using a combination of large clear print and lots of pictures."
Ian's conclusion is that the book doesn't do anything radical and it certainly doesn't attempt to make the reader into a computer scientist. This is about learning programming to get a very particular job done. Having said this, if the reader has any aptitude for programming this book might help them discover it and then graduate to something more, and so it still comes highly recommended to the right reader.
