4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for jumping into Windows CE July 9 1998
By sam_stokes@email.msn.com - Published on Amazon.com
Nick Grattan has done an excellent job of covering the Windows CE 2 programming problems and has created a number of excellent examples. This book ranks in my mind with the classic K&R White Book on C.
The reader should keep in mind that you must have the CE Toolkit for C++ ($200 US) as well as a Windows CE PIM running version 2.0 to be able to use this book.
Unfortunately the first example doesn't work, but all of the other examples that I have tested have functioned exactly as described. The book suffers from a lack of tight editing on the part of IDG (but this is always the case). The author did a fine job, but one does expect publishing companies to do something such as editing. IDG has finally published a book I found to be useful.
The CD shipped with the book did not work correctly with VC++, but the author quickly responded with a fix (24 hours!).
Author has quickly responded to emails (that related to the book).

2.0 out of 5 stars Frustratingly small amount of information here Sept. 6 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Being unexperienced with windows programming outside of visual basic and wanting to program for the CE platform, I thought this book might be a good place to start. Never again will I buy another dummies book on programming (maybe gardening.) I was disappointed by the lack of basic information here. The author manages to supply you with just enough to make the examples work, but not enough to do much else.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great for those familiar with using the API Oct. 27 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Anyone comfortable using API functions will have no trouble at all with this book. All examples in each chapter is demonstrated using API, and at the end of each chapter is a paragraph that discusses MFC options. Definitely not for the beginner programmer.
3.0 out of 5 stars not a bad start, but not enough to finish July 10 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Good at teaching you the differences between win32 and wince programming and starting you off with everything. Not enough information and not specific enough for Palm PC programming. More geared at initiating different aspects of wince programming rather than a reference.
4.0 out of 5 stars A good start June 17 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This book provides a good start for a programmer who is familiar with Visual C++. However, I don't think enough detail was provided for writing database applications. It provides a good starting point but not enough to do the whole job.
