Title: Visual Basic 6 How to Program

Customer opinion - 4 stars out of 5
Excellent self-learning text.

A highly recommended introductory text that covers the true basics of VB programming. There are no useless exercises which consist of only a sequence of instructions telling you where to place the mouse pointer. The discussion dealing with control structures is particularly good. Unfortunately, the text seems to be plagued by very numerous typographical errors. Hopefully, a second printing will take care of this.

If you are a developer, buy this book

I bought 5 books on Web services. This is the one I use 99% of the time.

If you are a developer who wants to build working web services, buy this book. If you just want to know or talk about web services (i.e you are a manager), then buy other books that gives you an overview.

It is very unfortunate that this book will never get updated. The author (Monson-Haefel) decided not to write any more books.

Title: eBay Secrets : How to create Internet auction listings that make 30% more money while selling every item you list

Well worth the time and money!

Not more than two days before reading this book I bought a book at a local book store for $26 and it was supposed to have everything I needed to know about eBay. After thumbing through it when I got home I realized that this book had nothing I needed to know...I returned the book the next day and went hunting on Amazon for something to better satisfy my cravings for eBay knowledge. I mean, really good eBay knowledge, not just the stuff I could get off of their help pages. I found eBay Secrets and decided to give it a try. For less than 1/3 of the price I got 1,000 times the knowledge!

Steven Ellis White gives good, practical tips that ANY eBayer, old or new, can use. I have read it twice now and took notes the second time around. I plan to implement the guidelines listed in this book as soon as possible. I can't wait to give it a try!
