A couple of days ago, I stacked the random assortment of books I had lying on my desk at work, and for some reason I decided to take a photo. It’s a bit of a mixed bag of good and not-so-good books.


Every now and then I know I’m in trouble because I have to whip out the yellow maths book to remind myself of something that I have forgotten. I enjoy the challenge of reading the quaternions book, but it’s pretty hard to motivate myself to really get into that one.

My favourite at the moment is probably Real-Time Rendering (the latest edition which I have at home to be more specific), and my least favourite is probably Clean Code.

Clean Code seems to take the good ideas from other books (like C++ Coding Standards), and then adds some more which don’t make as much sense (I can’t think of a specific example off-hand). The customer reviews on are pretty good though. I definitely had an ‘uh-oh’ moment when I read the buzzword-laden full title – Clean Code: A Handbook Of Agile Software Craftmanship.

    What is the yellow book? Who are its author? And what is about the orange book? This photo so small that I can’t identify it 🙂

    I totally agree with you about Akenine-Moller’s book. It’s really useful book. And I like it, because it explains many things by a simple way.
