Most of the computer books that I've read concentrate on one language. So, if you buy a book on Visual Studio, what you normally get is a single language view of the product, with an assortment of small examples in other languages thrown in for good measure. John Mueller has gotten past the single language perspective in his book. What you'll see is examples where all of the languages are used together to create a complete application. The examples are non-trivial and well designed. John also makes it clear as to why he chose a specific language for a given task. While this book didn't necessarily teach me as much as I would have liked in new programming techniques, it taught me something much more important, how to make best use of Visual Studio as a whole. There are some real plusses in this book. I found the examples all concentrate on the enterprise, rather than on the desktop. That's a real advantage because I don't write many desktop applications anymore. I also enjoyed all of the tips and especially the Web site pointers. About the only omission in this book is a lack of any FoxPro coverage. I don't consider this a very big loss because FoxPro is hardly a good choice for enterprise applications, especially new development. The author's choice of SQL Server is a good one.
