The perfect computer book

This is the perfect computer book. I think what I like the most is how easily it reads. What a great writer. He makes learning fun. I like the abundance of code to. It's refreshing to read a computer book that's enlightening and a good read at the same time. It makes learning transact-sql so much easier. Thanks for the chapter on Transaction Management. It was worth the price of the book alone (true for most of the chapters in the book - good stuff).

Good sense of Humour

Best description of what object oriented programming is, in simple language. Learning by example, which suits my learning style.
To comment on the comment from "Garfield fan", the parentheses are described on page 6.

Good for that transition from old versions to new

Several of us used this book to move from VB 6 to VB.net. It provided a quick and orderly transition for all of us, making us productive more quickly. If anything is wrong with the book, it doesn't affect its ability to get you over this hump.

A Great Start!

I am an Online Instructor for 22 Colleges and have many volumes of the latest Visual C++ texts. Horton has been the only Author to start with console apps and incorporate the meatier fundamentals of C++. Horton evolves this insight into win32 and of course MFC. The reality is the C-World is still at the command line level. The High Priests of the MicroSoft world have had a priveledged environment. Most of us cant go there. The business industry demands the C programmers deliver/convert existing apps to Windows applications for 98/NT and Win2000. Move over Visual Basic the C-World and C++'ers are going to put ya in your place.
