I have found this book very useful and an excellent resource. I would recommend it highly to anybody writing VBScript code.
How many books have you bought sight unseen that have failed your expectations and wasted your money? This book has it all. Great descriptions and in depth on every subject as well as shorthand appendixes that may be all that is really needed for an experienced programmer. The name of this book tells it like it is. If this were the only vbscript book in your library it would fill the niche admirably. I have only one improvement recomendation: In the shorthand appendixes of functions keywords et al It would have been nice to have bold emphasized fonts for the command or keyword etc. Easier to find pertinate info is all. I went through the appendix with a highlight pen to make it a better reference for fast lookups. This book is worth every red (as in copper) cent or more put forth.
