HASH(0x9e056060) out of 5 stars Not the regular VB book. Nov. 12 2007

Thearon Willis is a great writer, as from my past experience, but this book is not the one to learn anything from, unless you are looking for some very specific applications. It took me off guard, as I have never bought a book such as this before, but if a person is looking for an application that deals with pictures, this may be of great help in coding for the image application.
