Review: Visual Basic.Net Threading Handbook

Visual Basic.Net Threading HandbookVisual Basic.Net Threading Handbook by Kourosh Ardestani
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My specialty has been as a VBA (Excel/Access) and SQL Server database developer, but I have been edging into .NET work over the past year or two. Although there are some legitimate gripes about this book, in general I've found it to be an illuminating resource. Threading is essential to .NET programming, and the general concepts here have helped me to understand the projects I've been involved with, in both C# and VB. I can say sincerely, that the overview in this book is unmatched by material read on the internet, both in depth and quality.
