Mini Book Review: Graphics Programming in Windows (Charles Petzold)

Graphics Programming in Windows

My personal library is overcrowded, so over the years I have found it necessary to dispose of many books on outmoded technology. This book by Charles Petzold is different. Indeed, its unparalleled coverage of graphics programming techniques make it worth every inch of the space it takes up on my shelf.

Indeed, this book is a timeless classic. Although this it was written some time in the 1990s, its contents apply equally well to modern versions of Windows. Of course, it lacks details of the innovations that have occurred since it was written, but the programming techniques that it espouses will be as useful now as ever they were. Indeed, it is hard to find fault with a single example given in this volume.

Some people may find the book a little brief in places. Indeed, it does lack the depth of cover found in Petzold’s other books. Nevertheless, this book is without comparison in its subject area. If anyone is looking for a book on Windows Graphics, you’d be hard pressed to find one that is as informative as this one.

Sadly, Amazon lists this book as out of print. But, if you can obtain a copy of this book, I urge you to buy it. You won’t be sorry.

In short, highly recommended!
