As you probably have gathered, we have a tall order. A book of modest size would be hard pressed to cover new features of a language without introducing an entirely new language. This is not a modestly sized book. Visual Basic .NET Unleashed is a fairly comprehensive book covering a large gamut of topics in Visual Basic .NET programming. It is large and comprehensive out of necessity because there is much for you to discover in this new language.
My goal is to provide you with a comprehensive resource that you can read and return to as your experience and needs grow. Consequently I will begin well, at the beginning. The first chapter introduces the new unified Visual Studio IDE and progresses rapidly through fundamental and advanced programming, to illustration and explanation of the most powerful features of Visual Basic .NET programming.
Thank you for buying this book. I hope you enjoy and profit by the adventure.
