    Filled with Gems

    I found Mr Connell's book to be refreshing in its content and scope. He clearly treads areas of the framekwork where Ive yet to find any other coherent doc. If you love to explore, and want to really extend your knowledge in an enjoyable way, I recommend this book

    Plagued with mistakes

    I recently purchased this book to learn more about the advanced topics of authoring controls and I am abhorred. I feel instead like I¿m an editor correcting a novice author¿s mistakes. Generally I seek out books published by Microsoft Press because they represent an excellent knowledge base for Microsoft products, but if I find another book like this one, it may be the last. John Connell is terribly inconsistent with his naming conventions, often referring to classes when he means objects and objects when he means classes, abstract when he means static, and so on. The code examples are poorly written and inconsistent with his own instruction. In one sentence he advises calling Dispose() to clean up resources and a paragraph later uses two disposable objects without following his own advice. Much of the code doesn¿t even compile as shown. For example he shows strings broken onto separate lines that end with an ampersand and line continuation character but don¿t start with a quotation mark on the next line. He makes ridiculous comments on how it's unadvisable to embed an apostrophe in a string because the editor will interpret it as a comment. (Yes, he really said that. 'Now set up a string with the drive the user selected, which you retrieve from the dDrive class, and concatenate two single quotes. This way, you don't get lost in a sea of mismatched double and single quotes. And as you know, the editor sees a single quote as a remark.' You'll also notice he once again referred to a variable holding an object, or *instance* of a class, as a class.) And it goes on and on and on from there. Microsoft Press guys, please don¿t ever let John Connell write another book for you again.
