What People Are Saying

Keith Bugg
The book addresses all the salient features of SVG that someone would need to get up to speed. The book's use of basic mathematical functions to generate images is a strong selling pointnot everyone can draw, but just about everyone can do basic math. I found the topics to be thoroughly covered; and the material is very well organized, proceeding from the simple to the more complex.
