From the reviews: "This book explains what .Net is, then provides a comprehensive guide to retraining. The style is conversational and easy to read. ... Presentation is well structured, with plenty of notes, tips and cautions on matters such as registry editing. There are cross references to related topics covered in other chapters, and a copious index and relevant references are provided at the end of each chapter, with useful downloads." (Philip Ballinger, Computer Bulletin, March, 2004)
