This is a terrible book and is definately not for beginners. I bought another book after buying this book to understand Visual C++ and went back to this book and still didn't understand it. It covers a lot of material but does a terrible job in explaining it. Don't waste your money, go with Sybex's Master Visual c++.
It's a good reference book, but not for beginners as a text book. This book is the latest edition of Inside Visual C++ series. This book covers MS Visual C++ 6.0 while Inside Visual C++ (ed 4) only covers 5.0.
I think it's useful and I recommend it. > is a good book too.
