At my company we are thinking about doing some 3D visualization work. Sadly, this was the one course that I didn’t take while completing my PhD. So, I decided to pick up the seminal book on the topic that was on the desk of almost all the other HCI students in my department.

Luckily, there is a reason why the book is *the* seminal book on 3D interfaces even many years later. The book is well written, comprehensive, and backed by foundational research from some of the best people in the field.

The only thing I found lacking was a comparison between 2D and 3D interfaces for basic tasks or a sample study design. The topics were mentioned, but I would have liked to see something more in depth on both of those topics .
