This experienced author team has returned to share practical examples, tutorials, and quick answers aimed at helping you take your scripting skills to the next level.
Continuing in the style of the prior editions, the book begins with an introduction to VBScript and explains how it works as a language.

To be fair, my usage has only concentrated on the first few chapters (basic language concepts) and some of the appendices (reference materials) but these have many times provided the answers I've needed for creating dynamic web pages.
All in all, another very good reference manual from Wrox... I look forward to experimenting with the contents of a few more chapters over the coming months.
The index of the book is the culprit, basic things..ASP, string.. for example aren't indexed so trying to look up information becomes a real effort (although I'm convinced it's all there somewhere.
The previous reviewer sings the books praises and I can only think that this is due to reading it cover to cover, a book with reference in the title should be that... this isn't and I'd advise readers requiring a reference to look elsewhere
