    • Good beginners approach to what goes into a physics engine Covers the mathematics behind the physics in a way that is very easy to comprehend as well as the basic architecture of a physics engine as it relates to a real time game engine.By the end of the book, you get a basic kinematic physics engine with rigid body, springs, collisions, but no advanced topics like cloth.Even if you don t intend to write your own physics engine, this book is a good introduction for understanding what goes on beh [...]


    • Kinda sped along some of the mathematics but the point is that in practice, different tradeoffs need to be made based on the physics and the degree of realism your game requires Some sections seemed very vague for example, the section on contact generation seemed extremely hand wavey but made sense , others felt extremely intuitive.I suppose I should have read the source code while reading the book, but, oh well.


    • A good introductory book on physics engine architecture Most of the techniques presented apply to small scale engines for simulating specific scenarios for example, there is a section on creating a Loco Roco like game.


    • it s great but many times I couldn t find enough details to fully understand some topic some would like this for fast and easy doing but consider using a detailed book as a reference.


    • A great book for builing one s own physics engine Used it when I created CRUST mohammadshaker crustml for a cut the rope clone, Ropossum mohammadshaker ropossumml
