Book Review
Dan Appleman's Win32 API Puzzle Book and Tutorial for Visual Basic Programmers provides 32 challenging programming "puzzles" that will test the skills of any intermediate or advanced Visual Basic programmer.

The problems start simply enough, with puzzles that look at the basics of Win32 API C API calls, such as retrieving error messages and graphics. However, the book quickly approaches tougher terrain, offering a series of problems on the Windows Registry. Other problem topics include programming with Remote Access Services (RAS), networked drives, and the DEVMODE structure (for polling printers and other devices). Finally, the toughest problems involve ActiveX programming and cover how to work with Global Universal Identifiers (GUIDs) and drag-and-drop file operations.

The back of the book contains hints for each...



How Computer Programming Works

Book Review
It's interesting that even with all the emphasis on so-called "Visual" programming languages, most programming books ignore the fact that much of programming can be taught in visual terms, by analogy with how we work with physical objects. This is arguably the best illustrated book about computer programming, making great use of carefully selected graphics that depict the main aspects of programming. Highly Recommended both for novice programmers and for expert programmers who are interested in alternative ways of communicating the essentials of programming.

Book Description
...this book requires no prior knowledge of programming and is independent of the specific type of hardware. Illustrations and clear written description help teach the basic concepts of computer...

Book Review
Imagine, for a moment, a guy. This guy, about 40 years old, has worked all of his life in a job that doesn't require much knowledge of computers, certainly not of how to write software. Now, imagine that our guy decides to change career paths and learn computer programming. He goes and buys a book about a programming language, perhaps one that promotes itself as elementary. The book presents our hapless guy with recipes that he can follow, it's true, but mostly it confuses him with talk of APIs, linked lists, hashes, and a mess of other stuff that he doesn't understand, really. "I can make it all work by following directions," our guy implores into the Void. "But I don't understand what I'm doing." This guy needs How Computer Programming Works.

In this book, Daniel Appleman sets out to explain computer...

Book Description
Consider this true scenario: Two teenagers are both hit by some very nasty, damaging computer viruses. One was a virus that took down his Windows desktop at random times. The other was a trojan, with a hacker at the other end trying to blackmail him for game CD keys. Neither of the teens had up to date anti-virus software. Only one had a firewall.
