Customer opinion - 4 stars out of 5
Good book but I think 1 chapter is outdated


Good book I got it with a course and read it totally now. It can be used as an easy to read book for the COM virgin. Pre knowledge must be C++ and windows.
The Don Box book might also be good but as you compare it to this, that book is more difficult to read and technally detailed. Although I just read the 1st chapter of Essential COM.
Only one WARNING: I think the chapter about threads and apartments is outdated or not correct. This thought was confirmed to me in a newsgroup. Just skip this chapter.

I think it was worth the time


Highly recommend. As a UML newbie, I had gone thru a lot of UML books, but I found this one takes a more concrete and sensible approach to UML. And it is very easy to understand the entire UML concepts.This book goes far from a quick tutorial and introduces all the UML concepts in a logical manner.

Beginning XML Hooray!


This is one of the best reference manuals I have ever read (and I've read lot's of them!!!!). I recommend it to anyone who wants to learn, or may already know XML. Lot's of relevant information in an easy to follow format. Good Job, David hunter and friends!

Great Reference + Learning Tool!


This book rules. It's got plenty of quick reference tables in the back, as well as excellent examples throughout. The wording is concise, and gets you up and running quickly. I'm very happy with this book, and I think you will be too.
