So I picked this book rather than the VB book because of the color, not so much the code preference. There is no color in this book whatsoever! I've used other tech books and the ones with color is a welcome change - i was really looking foward to it, feel rather let down - its even listed on the cover as a selling point! Content is fine, have other books by MacDonald, always does a good job. Will be digging more into 3d and other new features of 5.
