… Recently Published Books


For those of you keeping up by reading books. The following are just a few of
the new books that have been recently released. If you’ve read any of these,
feel free to write a review to be posted on CodeGuru. See the submission
guidelines at:

http://www.codeguru.com/review-guidelines.php


–> Mastering Unreal Technology: The Art of Level
Design
      By Busby, Parrish, and Van
Eenwyk for Sams Publishing
      940 pages with CD
for $49.99
      http://books.internet.com/books/0672326922
     
This isn’t the typical book I present in the list of new books. With it being
Christmas, I thought I’d throw on a new book that was more in line with just
having fun than with serious programming. If you want serious, then I’ve
included like the second book below! This book, however, shows you how to create
levels for Unreal Tournament 2004.


–> Microsoft WIndows Internals, Fourth
Edition
      By Russinovich and Solomon
for Microsoft Press
      940 pages for $59.99 (hard
bound)
      http://books.internet.com/books/0735619174
