In many ways, this book is a little beyond it's time. It discusses 3D user interfaces for the most part of the book and how they can be useful in computer-human interactions. Java 3D is merely a specific platform in which the concepts were implemented and many of the ideas could easily apply to other 3D API. Only about a third of the book discusses the Java 3D API specifically and how various features can be used to solve problems when designing a 3D UI. It covers things from basic UI components to complex UI interactions.
This book delivers exactly what it set out to do, so don't expect more from it. If you want a Java 3D tutorial, you are better off looking elsewhere. I'm writing data visualization software but have little experience with user interfaces showing 3D data and I found this book suited me well. The updated code examples from the website also provide a good basis for my own code.
I guess many of the code and concepts of the book is coming from a research project on 3D user interaction, in Rice University. This book is a little bit too much focused on this special 3D framework.
And I don't like the writing style of the author. This book is somewhat difficult to read (I am a foreigner), the author uses lenghy words to describe a simple idea, and most times in a objective manner instead of a subjective manner, lists a lot of fact without giving a good reasoning. The reason for such a writing style maybe also because this book is comming from the result of a research project.
Bottom line: This book is excellent for who already have some 3D programming and OO pattern design background, and want to build/study next generation user interactive method. Currently not much people think 3D GUI is important, but I believe 5 years later VR, 3D GUI will become more and more popular. This book is really a pioneering work.
