The information presented in this book is concise and logical. The examples are superior to anything else I've ever seen.
I liked the piece on context-sensitive help files. Nothing is really complex or visually impressive. But it's core functionality that you can implement quickly, it's useful for the end user, and you can build on that technique both in your current and future applications.
The code could be better (as could anyone's). There is a strong focus on using local variables instead of global and the naming conventions make following the logic from one function to the next a little difficult. This, however, does not diminish the value of the concepts presented.
To use the book, you "MUST" download the files. Not only are they a lot easier to read, you can comment them extensively as you go and pick up logic bits.
An inportant suggestion is to not blow through the example application too quickly. If you take the time to take them apart, modify them and reassemble, you will pick up much more than just running them reading the code and moving on.
I bought it, used it and would buy it again...
I was looking as an exercise to offer well-written rewrites of older poorly written examples. After scanning through my copy, realized that even the examples were not worth redeeming.
(even in this book the examples are not often less than excellent.)
