It is just not enough...

This book can give you a good overview of Visual Basic, but it is not going too deep into details. Also, it did not give tasks that I could do on my own. I was only retyping the code and reading an explanation for it, which is not enough for a beginning programmer...

Oh so easy to understand!

This was an incredibly easy book to understand. Minimal words, lots of colorful pictures and fun graphics which show you (instead of describing to you) how to perform a function. I had another HTML book that I just got bored with after about 50 pages. This book was so engaging that I pretty much finished the book in a day and am able to start coding in HTML. This is a very good "how-to" book in the technical aspect of HTML. The only down side is that it promotes poor web page design (but this book is not about learning design so I'm still giving it 5 stars). For the design aspect of web pages, I would recommend picking up a copy of Robin William's "Design for Non-Designers" or "Web Design for Non-Designers."
A must for the beginner!

This book isn't just good... it's DAMN good!

I've been looking to develop my programming skills for over a year and this book has really helped me move beyond the basic MS MFC style books into a new realm of programming. The coverage of Direct X is great. I'm a newbie to DX and this book has given me the knowledge to get the ball rolling on my own. Thanks.
