"It is a typically excellent Deitel work. Chapters 5 - 7 were especially strong and the programs for chapters 9, 10, 13, 17 and 18 were at times breathtaking. Wow! You can actually do THAT with VB!"
"Thanks for creating an excellent learning and reference tool. I flipped through at least 20 books relating to VB .NET and Deitel exceeded all of them."
