If you've ever tried to work with Direct2D from scratch, you may have found the boilerplate code overwhelming. With Direct2D Succinctly by Chris Rose, you have a straightforward, step-by-step guide to rendering graphics with Direct2D. After starting a simple Hello, World! template application in Visual Studio, you'll gradually add to it until you have a complete charting system that features multiple pages, zooming functionality, and printing support. The final chapters of the book are devoted to Direct3D. Though Direct3D is capable of rendering 3-D graphics, it can render 2-D graphics much faster than Direct2D.
