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.

Since the COM integration in the .NET runtime has not changed substantially, after nearly ten years this book is still as valuable as ever.
(By sure you receive both volumes if you are buying second-hand.)
Yet it's a good book. If you're talking between .Net and COM it's got the information you need. Any chapter you open it to has good, readable information when you feel like browsing. It lies flat on a table when opened. What more could you ask for in a book?
Definitely worth the price.
If youre looking for a book thats older, from the era when running Windows NT 4.0 was normal, win95 was still commonly used? this is it.
unfortunately both books they shipped, part A and part B were on the inside, part B. so I dont know how it starts. but starting at page 810 skimming thru it looks to be well done

Concepts are vaguely explained
very vague and not many C# examples and it is not updated to latest .NET versions.
Reasons for InvalidCastException explained in this book is wrong, sometimes wonder if this author has any knowledge
