published January 30, 2016

it's not really a book on how to use SFML
the author just uses SFML for window, sprite management and music

he does create a game (see the cover of the book) but I haven't tried it out yet 

I have a subscription to Packt Publishing so I'm reading the book now
Just started it and I'm liking it

from the projects I've seen posted in this forum I can tell that the SFML stuff is too basic for 90% of the people on this forum
but they might find the other stuff useful
(he has a nice chapter on A*)

Ah yes, finally a book on this topic with real life C++ code. This will come in handy in one of my planned projects. Thanks for the info.
