1.0 out of 5 stars This is not a book; it's a manual, 13 Dec. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Windows Shell Programming (Prentice Hall series on Microsoft technologies) (Paperback)
After reading the brilliant "Visual C++ Windows Shell Programming" by Dino Esposito, this book came as a great disappointment. Mr. Seely is not an author, he just found a brilliant way to sell his custom shell class library, accompanied by an oversize manual.
Don't get me wrong; I'm not claiming that the classes he wrote are buggy or unusable. But I bought this book expecting to learn something for the shell internals, not how to use his classes which hide the "complications" from me. His "information" content is little more than verbatim copy of the MSDN shell API descriptions.
Total waste in case you want to learn anything. This item should not be sold in bookstores but in shareware class library outlets instead...
