"This book explains what .Net is, then provides a comprehensive guide to retraining. The style is conversational and easy to read. … Presentation is well structured, with plenty of notes, tips and cautions on matters such as registry editing. There are cross references to related topics covered in other chapters, and a copious index and relevant references are provided at the end of each chapter, with useful downloads."
