This book frequently refers to other books, Microsoft s Knowledge Base articles, articles from various journals, and from Microsoft s Developers Network (MSDN) Library. All the references for a particular chapter are listed at the end of the chapter. Each reference is indexed by a keyword that uses a combination of author s last name and year the reference was published. For example, Don Box s book Essential COM, which was published in 1998, is indexed as [Box-98]. In the book, each time I have to refer to an article, I use the keyword index of the reference.
