I have used books by this author for over 10 years since purchasing Mastering Visual Basic 6 by the author & have found them to be excellent in the past. This edition, however, was a dissapointment. I skipped most of the introductory chapters as I was primarily interested in LINQ, ADO.NET & ASP.NET. I think there are better books out there on these topics. They are covered only in introductory terms in this book & i'm afraid to say that there are many errors in the examples given in the book. Some of these are silly mistakes such as capitalisation, missing quotes etc. This just smacks of carelessness & makes me wonder how many mistakes there were in the chapters I skipped.
