This book spends time in the beginning discussing Visual Studio and the Application Wizard as well as programming techniques. The last half gets into specific MFC programming techniques. Most of them are relatively short and not too complex. It helps when you are just starting to learn MFC and shows alternate ways to do things. MFC and C++ are both too complex to be covered in one book. This book covers its own nitche. I have 5 books on MFC and C++ and would not be without any one of them. I have another one on MFC on order. My applications are quite complex and I need the books to reveal aspects of MFC that I can't get any other way.
The book brushes over complicated topics but spends far too much time on things that are well documented in the MSDN help that comes with VC++. The examples are good but I would have liked to see more on the more powerfull classes in VC++. The way the subject is handled makes this book a no no for beginers. Okay resource but the bible it aint.
