I'd been struggling for a while with the tutorial examples in the MSDN library, and another book I had was more 'do this and it will work', rather than 'this is how function x works'. This book has really hit the spot, and I've been able to write some simple MFC programs and fully understand how they work. Just about every line of code is explained clearly, so there are no problems with snippets of code being left as a mystery. The book doesn't use the wizards for quick MFC programming - I see that as a plus. This way you learn more about how the actual code works, rather than taking it for granted. Besides, it is very easy to have a play with the wizards and tinker with the code after gaining the knowledge from the book. This book isn't the definitive guide to MFC, but then it doesn't claim to be. It is an excellent starter book, one I heartily recommend.
