This book reminds me of the fluff book that gordon letwin wrote at the dawn of OS/2. Like that one this book is full of hopeless drivel.
The amount of VB is miniscule, the book is mostly C++. But, It really dosent matter if your looking for VB, or C++ examples, since the chopped up code examples in this book will just confuse you. They have also become outdated in the two years since this book came out.
Dont bother with this book unless your getting it on the 50% off clearance rack.

This book is a poor choice if you want to learn to program in the Pocket PC environment. The back cover calls this a "practical guide" but the book spends most of the first six chapters describing how Windows CE programming evolved from Windows programming. You must be fluent in Windows application development in C++ for this book to be useful. The examples are poor and do not work with the Visual Tools software available at the Microsoft site.

Unfortunately a lot of examples in this book are not for PocketPC platform. I tested them on x86emu, Compaq iPAQ and Casio PocketPC devices and analized MFC code. Some examples must be strongly modified to work on this platform.

There are some useful information in this book, however, this book does not go into great details on each particular subject. The section on writing an activesync provider, as an example, is really scant. The book merely points out what code to change in a cookbook method without ever explaining why its doing it, or explaining the whole architecture clearly for that matter. IF you've ever read LINUX HOWTO materials, you'll know what I mean. It shows you what to do, but it doesn't explain to you why you're doing it.
The most useful chapter is the last chapter (11 - Miscellaneous topics). As for the rest of the chapters, you can live by reading the online manuals.

I mainly bought this book for the networking chapter. The winsock code was very helpful and easy to understand.

This book advertises that it contains information about embedded Visual Basic. Like, only 1% of the book is about eVB. All the examples and code is for embedded C++, which is fine if that's what you are looking for. The author even acknowledges in the text of the book that discussion about eVB will not be covered, so why does the book say that it talks about eVB? I bought this book and wasted my money. Buyer Beware.

Embedded developers have to admit that they are too many acronyms and too many technologies. Thanks to Chris for giving us what we want, clear explanations and SOURCE! What a great chance to upgrade those old apps to the latest technologies by cutting and pasting Chris's examples. Works well as either a great reference a cover to cover read. Great job!!!

I wish one reviewer would have stated the obvious:This book is written for C++ developers (the author states this on page 92). If you are trying to write a program using anything like Visual Basic this book might as well have been written in Japanese. The main example developed throughout the book is in C++. 99% of the book is C++. VB is only mentioned as an afterthought and developing using VB as a primary platform is not explained AT ALL! It looks like it could be a good book for C++ developers but I wouldn't know since I am not one. If you want to learn to develop programs for handheld devices using VB forget this book or learn C++ before you buy it.
