Hi! Firstly, I'd like to say that I've enjoyed reading the book and I'm
planning to do my master thesis about the theme, 3D user interfaces. However
I was a little disappointed that I didn't find any bibliography in the book.
So, Mr. Barrilleaux, could you put the bibliography you used available online?
Just a suggestion: how about putting a bibliography in the next edition of
the book?
Thanks in advance,

Leandro T. Vieira.

I'm glad you are enjoying the book. The lack of bibliography was pointed out
early on by the reviewers. Most of the ideas and concepts were developed
informally over the course of a few years, motivated by the needs and
deadlines of commerical product development. The work went through many
evolutions, using trial and error, and borrowing bits and pieces of ideas from
here and there. The process could be described as being more akin to sausage
making than to academic research. When the dust settled the opportunity arose
to write the book and I tried to formalize and codify as much of what we had
learned over the years in the book, with java code to back up some of the
ideas that we never got around to implementing.

So, in short, there is no bibliography. As for a second edition, I suggest
you contact the publisher.
