Step-by-Step Instruction on Complex Topics Leads You to the Expert Level

Do you scour VB.NET books seeking solutions for esoteric database programming, debugging, security, or printing challenges, but can't ever find them? Are you wrestling with VB.NET's newer topics, such as asynchronous programming, Web services, employing Office objects, using reflection, and the .NET Compact Framework? Could you use some assistance making the transition from VB6 to VB.NET? If so, peer inside.

Book News
The term avant garde is surely rare in a book for computer programmers. Widely-published authors on Visual Basic regard programming as more art than science, so they explore the aesthetic side of programming in the new VB.NET language as well as other sophisticated topics not often treated in other books on the subject. While they cover advanced levels of such standard topics as debugging, security, and Windows applications, Petroutsos and Mansfield also discuss the implications of VB.NET having been designed by C programmers and encryption (a hobby of one of the authors).
