Editorial Reviews

Booknews
It was many and many a month ago, in a kingdom by the sea, that this marvelous book was first published for programmers in C. The author's wit and grasp of both the C language and Windows programming is clearly illustrated in his numerous and interesting examples. For example, he uses Poe's "Annabel Lee" to illustrate user defined resources. This third edition is updated to highlight Windows 3.1 capabilities. Highly recommended for all Windows programmers, even those who program in Visual BASIC. Disk with sample programs included. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
