Introduction to Game Development is a book in the vein of the Game Programming Gems series, it consists of a collection of articles written by game industry veterans Steve Rabin, Noel Llopis, Eric Lengyel, etc. The book is divided into several sections, each related to a specific role in the industry: game design, game programming, audio visual art and game production publishing and economics. Authors get to their point quickly and stick to it. For an introductory book, they sure as hell cover a lot of material, the graphics chapter alone pretty much covers an entire undergraduate level graphics course, the animation chapter and pathfinding chapters are also quite excellent and need mentioning. All in all, this book covers the background and basics of the various disciplines and provides a in depth look into that part of the industry. If anyone is interested in learning more about what game programming is, what game assets creation is all about or anything at all to do with the game development industry then this book is pretty much the only book that they need to get.
