Praise for GPU Pro: Any professional programmer in the field will find something of interest in this volume. I'm thrilled to see that this collection is in color--it's about time! A wide range of topics are covered, from global illumination to image processing to mobile devices. I particularly like the fact that the book doesn't go the scholarly researcher route; the articles are written in a straightforward way to help with implementation of the idea, and code is often provided. --Eric Haines, co-author of Real-Time Rendering, February 2010 I recently started reading GPU Pro and it is outstanding! I love the full color and syntax highlighting! --Patrick Cozzi, Virtual Globe and Terrain Rendering blog, June 2010
