Customer opinion - 4 stars out of 5
Good if you want to program VISUAL Studio


The title is inside visual studio. Inside meaning writing addons, macros, etc. It is not a book about how to use all of the features of the IDE. It quickly goes over the IDE interface but then quickly delves into the inner(inside) workings and api of the IDE environment. If you need to create Addons this is the book for you.

Great beginners guide for online play!


Although the author is a well known, don't expect an advanced treatise on onlie play. What this is, however, is a good nuts & bolts guide for online play. Great for beginners and intermediate players who have want to transition from live to online play. Also servers as a good beginner's guide to limit Texas holdem. This is the most popular game being played online, at casinos, and in local card rooms. Learn this game and you can make a living anywhere in the world, online or live!

Excellent book


I was new to ANT before purchasing this book. It is easy to follow and has good examples that go along well with the descriptions of each section. I found the author did an excellent job of explaining the details of programming with ANT scripts. I highly recommend this book.

Microspeak


Reference and more. Useful. But there is a quaintness to some of its opinions. For example, "multitasking" is not to be used as a verb ("it is jargon"), do not say "grow your business," do not use "peripheral" as a noun, to refer to computer accessories, etc. My favorite entry, especially fun to find in light of Microsoft's legal problems arising in part from its relationship to Netscape Navigator, is this Orwellian directive, found on p. 185: "Navigate. Avoid the verb 'navigate' to refer to moving from site to site, page to page within a site, or link to link on the Internet.(...) Instead, use 'explore' to mean looking for sites or pages generally..."
A useful book in many ways.
