More About the Author

Alex Homer is a technical writer assigned to the Microsoft patterns & practices division in Redmond. Following a career within and outside of the IT world, including an eclectic range of jobs from tractor driver to double-glazing salesman, he spent many years as a software and training specialist before tiring of the conference circuit and joining Microsoft. However, he has so far resisted the dubious attractions of Seattle weather in favor of working from home in the idyllic rural surroundings of the Derbyshire Dales in the heart of England. Now he spends his days knee-deep in design patterns and architectural literature; writing books, documentation, sample code, and producing technical guidance in its myriad other forms - most of which is helpfully co-authored by two over-inquisitive cats. His weekly semi-coherent ramblings on the IT industry, and life in general, can be found at http://blogs.msdn.com/alexhomer/.

Very Disappointing 7 April 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I was very disappointed with this book. The information about VBScript was not as extensive as I would have liked. The continuous reliance on ActiveX controls made most of the content worthless when doing cross-browser development. As an introductory book, it was only OK.

Useful, but out of date 22 Oct 1998
By garth@wco.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I found this book useful in many aspects, but its dependance on the ActiveX Layout Control really holds it back. (alx doesn't work proprely in IE4 and MS isn't going to fix it either) It is just faced with the same problem as most other internet technology publications, which is that it goes out of date shortly after the ink dries.
