The book is a reference for developers using 3D models. Instead of simply showing a spec sheet, the book delves into the loading and rendering techniques of 3D models. The text is as API and platform independent as possible, so users of Direct3D, OpenGL, etc. will be able to interpret and use the information provided in the book.
