The scope of the book is just about everything related to using "unmanaged code" in the .NET Framework. Technologies built on top of COM Interoperability are also covered-Interoperability of Windows Forms Controls and ActiveX controls, Interoperability with COM+, and Interoperability with Distributed COM (DCOM). Although Platform Invocation Services is a separate technology from COM Interoperability, there are many areas of overlap, so including in the book is a natural fit. All of these technologies are a core part of the Common Language Runtime and .NET Framework, and will likely be used not only as the path of migration for existing software projects, but for brand new software development for the next several years.
This product consists of of two volume set.
Adam Nathan is a software design engineer on Microsoft's .NET Common Language Runtime QA team. Taking on the role of an external software developer, Adam has worked to ensure the quality and usability of COM Interoperability for close to three years. He has participated in the design decisions that have shaped the product from its beginnings, and thus is able to give a unique perspective when explaining this complex technology to the reader. Adam is a co-author of ASP.NET: Tips, Tutorial, and Code.
Adam has server on a panel of .NET experts, provided technical assistance during hands-on labs, and helped to prepare deonstrations at the Microsoft Professional Developers Conferences in 2000 and 2001. He has learned where developers of aqll skill levels frequently struggle with COM Interoperability and Platform Invocation Services, and regularly provides technical assistance on .NET mailing lists. Adam received an honors B.S. degree in computer science at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York.
They claim this is a two volume set. Both volumes appear to be bound together in one heavy book. Seems to be very thorough and am presently attempting to learn from it. Read morePublished on April 12, 2012 by pen
If you need to do any nontrivial integration of .NET with COM (or other unmanaged code), you need this book. It's a huge and difficult topic full of pitfalls. Read morePublished on May 1, 2011 by Govert
I bought a used copy of this "Complete Guide" only to receive "Part A", which, naturally breaks just before the advanced material I'm interested in. Read morePublished on November 6, 2009 by frankp93
This book is certainly complete in that it is full of content for COM. As far as .NET interop, I feel it lacks the methods needed to migrate unmanaged code.Published on August 5, 2009 by stosh259
First I didnt realize its from SAMS, they have a certain style of writing; its from 2001 so its not a newer c# reference. Read morePublished on July 15, 2009 by Mark Fiven

My co-worker had a previous edition of this book (now set) and it was the bible for any question regarding .Net/COM interop. Read morePublished on June 14, 2007 by Amazon Customer
I read Troelsen's book on COM/.NET interroperability. This two volume set easily exceeds in content. Read morePublished on May 12, 2007 by Kwisatz Haderach
