I have been teaching myself visualisation in Matlab for the last 3 years. Mostly by following the Mathworks blogs, asking questions on the newsgroups and on stack exchange, and by tinkering with code from FEX submissions and books.
Eventually I started writing about it on my blog.
So I was very pleased when the publishers of this book approached me offering a free evaluation copy of the e-book in exchange for a n Amazon review, and I gladly accepted.
I was particularly interested in the chapters on 3- and multi-dimensional visualisation, so I went straight to those, which are excellent.
First impression: I wish I had this book a couple of years ago.
As I stepped back and start from the beginning to work at my review, I realised this is also an excellent book if you are an absolute beginner, and that's why I am recommending it here.
If you are just staring with graphics in Matlab, give it a try, the authors were kind enough to offer the first chapter as a sample.
Then buy it if you like it. The e-book comes with fully functional downloadable code.
I will most likely update this to 5-stars once I finish reading the book.
