Visual Basic (VB) programmers will find Craig Utleyís A Programmerís
Introduction to Visual Basic .NET to be a well-written and concise
introduction to the changes that await them with the forthcoming release of VB

The book
is now in its third incarnation. The first was barely 200 pages. The second
release was a free e-book for M'zoft TechEd. Although this release is still
brief, at 321 pages of text, the content has broadened to include chapters on
multithreading, performance monitoring, deploying applications, and COM

the coverage has broadened, it has not deepened, and that was a disappointment.
A good example is the chapter on multithreading. The author provides an
interesting example, walking the developer through each line of code. Utley
does a good job of explaining the benefits of multithreading. Unfortunately,
the book provides just enough information to get a developer in serious
trouble. Thereís no discussion of threading models, and not enough discussion
of synchronization and the dangers of side effects and deadlocks. The chapter
on inheritance and polymorphism was equally disappointing. The book offers some
advice on the topics, but nowhere near enough for developers to avoid fragile
base classes, programming to classes instead of interfaces, etc. In the
authorís defense, one could argue that detailed conversations about topics such
as multithreaded programming and object-oriented programming fundamentals
belong in another book. This is a book about how to use the new features in VB

coverage of the M'zoft .NET Framework, including the Common Language Runtime
and the Framework Class Library, was a big disappointment in the earlier
version of the book and remains weak. VB developers have access to new
libraries in the .NET Framework that greatly expand the versatility of VB and
need to understand the basic features of the M'zoft .NET Framework in order
to use VB .NET profitably.

If you
want technical details, such as the available features in the .NET Framework
Class Library, this book will disappoint you. However, if you like books loaded
with examples that show snapshots of the IDE as you build something like a Web
Service client, you will applaud this book. The book, which walks you through
the code, is well written and offers lots of practical advice. The lack of
technical detail is a blemish, not a disqualification. With lots of useful
information, especially if you plan to use ADO.NET or ASP.NET, this book is
definitely worth considering for your bookshelf.
