I would highly recommend this book to any intermiedate vb.net developer. I use it almost everyday to find out new tips and tricks. It has great coverage of the .net framework - winforms, web services, ado.net, asp.net, string handling, file handling, xml, reflection, threading, windows services, remoting, security, com interop - you name it, it's probably here. The book goes into more depth than other cookbooks I have, so you also get a bit of background on the subject rather than just a straight answer.
I would probably give it 4.5 stars if I could, it doesn't get 5 stars because it very occasionally does not have what I need in it - but then, what book could cover everything?
