Personally I think this book should be on every desk of every Visual Basic programmer. I think that it is laid out well and the examples in the book are easy to follow. This is not a book that you read before bed or that will keep you up at night with the plot twists but it does what it says. Essentially this is a refrence book on the applications programmers interface which is the backbone of the Windows OS. This is an updated version of the book meant for VB6 users but it could be used by older versions of the lanquage. Essentially it is *the* book to have if you are serious about VB6 programming.

I would not think of doing without Dan's API guide.
I started Windows in 1991 with C and SDK. In those days you had to learn the API to get your work done. But, after VB 3.0, I got completely away from C and intimate knowledge of the API. Dan's book de-mystifies the Win32 API.
New and intermediate VB programmers will find his explanations easy to follow. Dan tells you why things work the way they do and warns about any pitfalls using VB for API calls. (There are not many problems, but they do exist.)
I you have not got this book and you are serious about VB, I recommend you get it.

(((Warning))) There are Bonus Chapter and Utilities Tools in CD-Rom, which not in the book.
Beware , Buying the this book without CD-Rom.

I bought a used copy. It came complete with the cd-rom and was in good shape. The book contains al the ins and outs you may need. Just perfect!

The book is new.(NEW)
I like it, because the book is new as describe
But the packing is not good, because the CD is cracked.(can not use)
Anything else is good.
Disclaimer: our public library only had the edition for VB4 (1996, I think), and the CD was mostly unreadable so I couldn't get to many of the examples.
I've programmed in more than half a dozen languages on at least as many machines and I didn't think this book was as great as everyone here is making it sound. Maybe the newer edition is a lot better. I thought the author couldn't decide whether he wanted to give an exposition on how Windows works or on what his example programs were all about, or provide a thorough reference on API function calls. The compromise approach -- a little of both -- didn't seem very satisfactory.
The pages of code were both mind-numbing and needless. The chapter on memory explained how to get memory, but had nothing on what to do with it once you got it! The function reference sections, which could have been the basis for a really excellent book, were too short and cryptic. I found his writing style confusing in spots and there were numerous digressions before he actually got to the topic of the section heading. Maybe this is the best book on this subject out there (as some seem to think), but it only rated about a 6 out of 10 on an absolute scale for programming books and seemed to need a serious re-writing to excise the needless repetition (and re-repetition). There were several topics I wanted info on which were nowhere to be found. A 1200 page book should be better IMO. Perhaps beginning API programmers will get a lot out of it. 3 1/2 stars.
