    Comments about oreilly Programming 3D Applications with HTML5 and WebGL:

    I bought this book in the first place to get a good overview of what is out there readily available in HTML/WebGL without necessarily immediately starting to use the code. Having gone through the book I am convinced that it allows me to easily find more detailed knowledge if and when needed. Which is exactly how I think about a reference book.

      This book is very well-written and helpful(so far), but is a little tricky unless you are extremely familiar with JS, and read it several times.
