    A note from the author

    I'm quite proud of this book (Okay the 5 stars might be a tad biased)... Though my new hardcover book is physically 60 pages shorter than the previous version, don't be fooled. The type set used for the book is considerably more condensed and if the original fonts had been used the book would run well over 200 pages more than its predecessor. It contains 6 new chapters covering the topics: * Integrated XML Documentation * Windows Services * Network Programming * Security * Unsafe C++ .NET Programming * Advanced Unsafe C++ .NET Programming (PInvoke, Interop and Data Marshaling) Not only are there these 6 additional chapters, the first four chapters were almost completely rewritten. Also due to the changes made from Managed C++ to C++/CLI, every example in the book had to be rewritten. The only thing I regret about the book is that I had to remove the chapter on creating Web applications but there really wasn't much I could do about it as it can no longer be done. (I'm hoping someone will prove me wrong and submit an article to this book's support site showing how to do it.) For those of you who end up buying the book thank you and I hope you get as much out of it as I put into creating it. Stephen R. G. Fraser
