Generative Art approaches its subject in a practical and immersive way, building abstract programming skills without the reader, or rather the participant, ever realising it.
This is the first book on Processing or creative coding that had me following the code examples throughout. Especially the later chapters devoted on agents and recursion provide enough ideas to fuel many explorations. I'm really impressed by this. It doesn't feel like a hard-copy of a course given somewhere by someone. Browsing the TOC, I was tempted to read each chapter.
Due to the very personal approach throughout the book, I even read the chapters where Matt couldn't teach me anything new.
With just the right mix of instruction and inspiration, working through the book was a pleasure, and I was producing interesting and rewarding results right from the start. This book should be considered as a stepping stone to experimentation, rather than a comprehensive review of the many facets of generative art and it's certainly set me along an interesting and rewarding path into the area.
