Title: Sams Teach Yourself Microsoft Visual Basic .NET 2003 (VB .NET) in 24 Hours Complete Starter Kit
Publisher: Sams
Authors: James Foxall
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
A Great book for Beginners

I am new to any version of Visual Basic and found this book on the recomendation from a friend to look into the Sams Teach Yourself series. I couldn't be happier. Although new to VB, I'm not new to a PC or Windows. After reading many other "self paced" books on the market (A+, Network+, Access to name a few), this one has been the easiest to follow along while keeping my attention peaked. I couldn't seem to wait to get to the next chapter. He also references his web site which also provides additional information to help you while you learn. That was helpful. Also, James Foxall has a very good sense of humor, which does help learning this language. Thank you James!

I n c r e d i b l e !

This is absolutely the best book I've ever read in regards to web development. I very rarely read a book word for word but this one I'm actually highlighting as I read. If you design or develop websites then this is a must read. I think it creates a nice bridge between designers and developers and puts them on the same page, creating a site for CUSTOMERS to use.

Blast From the Past

Most books on JavaScript are packed with examples of how to do several simple tasks. Kinda like a cookbook; you can make several different individual items, but there's very little or no guidance at all on how to make a nice dinner or meal made up of several items that blend nicely. Or, more importantly, no explanation of *why* certain items should go together and others should not.
An average teacher shows you "how" to do it; a great teacher tells you "why" it's done that way.
"JavaScript For The World Wide Web" tells you "why" JavaScript works the way it does, and points you to several web sites that further clearly explain it's finer points.The examples are very informative and cover a wide range of situations and techniques.Each chapter is full of easy to understand examples, and the appendix that covers the JavaScript object table is a gold mine all by itself.
The best part about this book is that you are shown how to write cross-broswer compliant JavaScript that isn't huge and confusing.
This book is so important to me that I keep it next to my PC, right beside my O'Reilly JavaScript book (the one with the rhino on the cover).
If you have never programmed a line of code in your life, this book will help get you started.
Don't be afraid of writing code that won't work; there's lots of places on the WWW that are full of experienced programmers willing to help.
This book is great place to start. :)
