Ever since we published the first edition of our Visual
Basic .NET book back in 2002, we've been getting comments
"I have a huge library of computer books. Yours are
THE best! Your Visual Basic book is so good, I opened
it and did the whole application from scratch (even
though I'd never tried VB before)."
"I can't praise this book highly enough. The clarity
Anne uses in picking what to include, when to introduce
it, and how to do so is remarkable."
"I recently picked up your Visual Basic book. A stellar
example of how to impart knowledge. Truly a publication
well worth the price."
"Had I bought your VB book first, I would have saved
myself lots of dollars and several months time."
Now, Anne Boehm continues this tradition of quality
and usefulness in the latest edition of our VB text,
written for Visual Basic 2010.
