This book has a few good chapters in it "On Error GoToHell" - on errors, "Minutiae" on compiler options andother usually overlooked Visual Basic optimizations, "Well, at Least it compiled OK!" on testing, "Starting With Bases Loaded" on base code, "Mixing Languages with Visual Studio" and "Didn't I Write That Function Last WeeK?" on code reuse. I didn't read the chapters on IIS, databases and CE (if I wanted a book about these subjects, I would buy one). The most surprising chapters dealt with enterprise development and "How to Find, Recruit, and Retain Great Developers" which were just plain out of scope. TMS authors' should write about VB6 in a VB6 book. Those chapters should be elsewhere - maybe a management book. I also did not like the Accessibility in Visual Basic chapter which dealt with making your programs for disabled people. Also, the dating and programming with variant chapters were frivolous and not "advanced" at all.
