Computational Geometry Reccomendations

What are your recommendations for computational geometry books? 

I’m developing in C++, but I don’t really care what programming language is used in the book.

Also, what experiences have you had with commercial or commercial friendly computational geometry libraries such as CGAL or Wykobi?

Computational Geometry in C by Joseph O'Rourke is probably the most accessible.

Computational Geometry: Algorithms and Applications by Mark de Berg is more comprehensive

This site is also a great start

ps. You might want to ask this on stackoverflow !

Not a book, but still a pretty thorough introduction to the topic:
