I almost missed this free offer(5 hours left) I was looking into buying this book before. I did not buy it yet because of the bad reviews. It was also very expensive.

Thanks Mikehart :)

 The books is nice to have but honestly is too basic, I expected landscape/islands/cities/texture stuff instead it focuses on how to use random numbers for some very basic stuff.

still can't complain as it is a free book after all  :)
