From the Back Cover
Special Edition Using Visual Basic 6 is organized to serve as an easy to use reference. Individual topics and material are organized so they are easy to locate and read. Special Edition Using Visual Basic 6 also teaches Visual Basic in a straightforward manner. It is assumed that the reader is new to Visual Basic. The book will teach programming with Visual Basic in a steady, consistent pace. After teaching the reader the Visual Basic programming language, the book progresses into more advanced topics. Such hot topics include creating ActiveX controls, using Visual Basic with Active Server Pages, VB database programming, and more. Because of its straightforward approach, Special Edition Using Visual Basic 6 covers more topics in more detail than equivalently sized books. New: This new edition incorporates changes to Visual Basic 6. Additionally, the authors are adding additional hands-on examples throughout the book, making it even easier to learn the topics within Visual Basic.

The index of the book is quite good, as we actually can find what we are looking for. It doesn't have very many advanced topics but I would recommend it for every beginner and intermediate user. I think it would be of great help.
The programming listings are poor. The programs are mostly stand-alone procedures and you cannot test them. How can the reader understand the meaning of the programs?
It teaches programming with several lines each chapter. You just learn some brief descriptions to the topics. Only one topic is more practical: Appendix B Packaging your applications teaches you to create a Setup.exe.
If I am a beginner, I think 'Using' series is better. If I am an Intermediate, I may choose 'Platinum Edition' series(quite similar with Special Edition'). I don't why the QUE want to print this book.
If you want to learn more specific topics, try other books! You don't know what you've learned and what you can write after reading the whole book. Worthless!
The book does get through a lot of things linked to the language, its components and things like that. However if someone wants to get 'professional' about a detail (eg: WinSock), one has to look elsewhere. This said, the background provided by this book makes understanding these 'extras' an easy thing.
Having access to M$'s MSDN is an extra help (in this, and any M$ language/sytem), for refering to API's and 'hidden' details.
If your other customers are like me and appreciate the CD I would steer clear of this book. (This publisher?)
The publisher has fixed the problems with the code examples on the web, too.
I heartily recommend this book for beginners as well as programmers experienced in other languages.
This book is basically a VB5 Book
