    The best book I have seen on WebGL!Highly recommended if you really want to learn WebGL in depth.What I like most is that it teaches 3D graphics in depth as well.The other book I bought mainly discuss the API but do not teach you 3D graphics.John

    Very well written book about WebGL with a lot of useful information if you want to master WebGL and 3D graphics.

    Belive it or not but I (who was never that fond of maths before)
    really like the chapter that explains the linear algebra that is needed to understand 3D graphics and WebGL in depth.

    This is one of the best computer books I own!
