Praise

“If you’ve ever wanted to peek behind the curtain and understand how [computer graphics] work, here you’ve got it in a step-by-step process. . . . A nice resource to have to learn about the basics of computer graphics. . . . If you want to jump in and learn about computer graphics or get an understanding of how ray tracing works, this is a good choice.”
—Game From Scratch

“There’s enough information in his book for a university course. In fact, the book is based on the course Gambetta taught before he became a senior engineer at Google.”
—Joy Schwabach, Arkansas Democrat Gazette‘s On Computers

“One of the best textbooks I have ever seen! . . . I am in awe of the simplicity of the math and science involved. It feels a lot like I am wielding magical powers that I’ve always thought were beyond my reach. [Gabriel Gambetta has] absolutely managed to demystify the process. I guess it’s a sort of ‘the power was within you the whole time’ kind of moment.”
