An excellent resource for Visual Basic programmers looking to interface hardware through standard ports. Anyone designing hardware to work with a parallel port is well advised to add this book to their library. -- Personal Engineering and Instrumentation News, Paul Schreier, May 1997
If you need to do any development of parallel port devices or want to get a bit-level understanding of the port's inner workings, I strongly recommend Parallel Port Complete. -- Bill Machrone, PC Week, July 20, 1998
If you want to learn about PC-based parallel ports, then you need a copy of Jan Axelson's Parallel Port Complete. Good stuff. -- Electronics Now, Jeff Holtzman, Aug. 1997
It's been awhile since I've seen a book as practical as this one. Parallel Port Complete is a real keeper! -- Nuts & Volts, Joseph Carr, March 1997
The book is written in a very readable style and starts off with the basics; you don't have to be a hardware guru to read it. If you think you might ever need to access a parallel port (under any operating system), this book is for you. -- Windows Developer's Journal, Feb. 1998
