Meet the Author

Just in case you care about such things, Richard Mansfield has written 25 computer books, 4 of which became bestsellers: Machine Language for Beginners, The Second Book of Machine Language, The Visual Guide to Visual Basic, and The Visual Basic Power Toolkit (with Evangelos Petroutsos). His most recent title is Hacker Attack. He has written columns and articles in computer magazines, but since 1991 he has focused full-time on writing books. Overall, his books have sold more than 500,000 copies worldwide and have been translated into 11 languages. But that's not the whole story. He's extraordinarily sedentary, preferring to sit and read, write, or program his computers instead of moving around. He realizes that all this goes against the popular health craze, but so far -- so good.

    Outstanding Book!

    I have read through many computer books when working learning programming and obtaining an A+ Certification. The vast majority of the computer books are difficult to understand. It seems like the writers are not trying to communicate with humans. This book is a refreshing change! Reading this brought me from a beginner to being OK in programming Visual Basic. The book is one of the few where the author has a strong voice, which makes it easy to understand. Also, another great feature is that all of the VB code is put on the attached CD. The CD has helped me save time by not having to rewrite the same code; instead I focused on the concepts. In addition, after reading the book, I used the CD's test feature to ensure that I learned the concepts. Comparing this book with the other learn 'Visual Basic quick' type books, this is my favorite

    This book saved me.

    Without any VB experience, I was struggling in a lecture-based class. I glanced through several books and opted to purchase this one as it seemed to include several shortcuts, tips, etc. It has a wonderful 'hands-on' approach then 'let's talk about what we just did' as it rapidly covers what I needed to know. None of the boring in-between I sat through 10 classes with. I kept losing focus. This saved me. So if you need straight and to the point while you 'get your hands dirty', this is it. Great beginner book for a rapid learner.
