From the reviews:
"This book documents the extensions that Microsoft has added to C ++ to allow its use as a language in the .NET environment using CLR (Common Language Runtime). ... the authors have written a book that is very clearly focused on the needs of a C++ programmer faced with decisions about whether to use managed extensions or not. … I have no doubt that if you need to consider using MC++ this book will help you." (Francis Glassborow, CVU, June, 2002)
"What this book covers is virtually everything that a C++ programmer will need to write code using Managed Extensions for C++ (MC++). … an excellent tutorial of the various features of MC++. … contains the best explanation of managed extensions that you are likely to find. Topics are discussed in terms that make sense for C++ programmers. … The code samples are designed to give a clear explanation of the topic being discussed."
