I have studied programming extensively first with pascal then C, C++ and Visual Basic. I have worked as a programmer for 2 yrs. and have received accolades for my work. I have used more than a dozen text books and reference books and this is by far the worst one that I have ever seen. I have spent hours pouring over my code thinking that I must have copied it wrong. After checking over the syntax numerous times I finally decided to try debugging it. I was able to eventually debug all of the code and get it to run successfully. When I compared it to the code in the book, none of the code in the book matched my working code and none of the code in the book ran without bugs. Not only will I never buy another one of his books but I will never buy one in that series again.
