This book, I feel, is the greatest QBASIC tutorial/reference ever written. It is definitely considered to me a sequel to all the other QBASIC books on the market, in that it seems to take you not only one, but many more steps ahead. I have been looking for a book with even just a little bit of advanced graphics and sound programming. Buying this book got all that and tons more. I pity all those who don't own this title!

This is an amazing book. The scientific knowledge of the author(s) flows through all the pages. The logic used is flawless and the examples are crystal clear.
Most books on basic just walk you through the basics (pun intended) but never get to the nitty-gritty of real world programming. The authors have an amazing insight on structured programming and how qbasic works. Reminds me of the mainframe scientists of the past.
I wish the authors would just write a book on VB since the documentation that comes with the program is also very elementary.
Thank you guys.

Very, very nice. Forget the petty nitpicking, this is a GREAT book for people serious about using QBasic as a programming language. If it had a true introduction to QBasic for beginners it would be the one-stop-shop for the language. As it is, though, you need to be somewhat familiar in order to appreciate just how good this book is!

The Revolutionary Guide to Qbasic is by far the best book out there for programming games in basic. It is filled with chapters on sound and graphics that nearly every other book on the market neglects to include. I make games in my spare time and until now have been picking apart other games and asking more experienced programmers how to write complex sections of code. Well, no more! This book has it all: 3-D scrolling, tile based gaming, creating music, and more. Why buy another book about how to make a loop or print data to the screen? This book it truly the best way to advance your hobby in Basic programming.

This book is great. Despite one person's comment on the authors' English it is not bad. I understood it perfectly. No book will make sense if you carefully select a part that needs another paragraph to make sense. The book has a great disk of code along with info on advanced QB topics. Great book! Buy it!

I enjoyed every topic covered. It opened my eyes a little more on QB. It truly is the next level up from your ordinary QB programming.
