While I like the author's style and humor, the example code that he has you enter is syntactically wrong in some places, (probably because he wrote it based upon the Beta version of VB.NET) and programatically wrong in at least one other place.(Session 6) To make his example work, you would have to practice poor programming habits.<p> Fortunately for me, I had the resources of an experienced VB programmer to review this code and tell me that it was wrong. Otherwise I would have thought that I possibly had done something and been very frustrated.<p> Additionally the publisher, Hungry Minds, has been absorbed by Wiley Publishing. While I have nothing bad to say about Wiley, they have removed all the content from Hungry Mind's website and offer no support for the book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
