The first 100 pages provides a good concise overview of COM programming. It is well written and to the point. However, the remaining section (250 pages) of examples was disappointing. The examples were shells only and had only a summary explanation of each. The same content was copied over and over in all the examples. For example, the "How to register the DLL" explaination, which took almost a page, was copied verbatim in the other examples. Instead of building on a concept, it was simply repeated. 90% of the examples were MFC generated code. It seemed to be more an attempt to fatten up the book rather than to provide content. In short, I think one would be better off with another book that can provide more in-depth examples that one can learn from. Not just the same MFC code again and again.

This is the worst example of a programming book I have ever purchased. The worst insult was the fact that even though on the cover it says using ActiveX. A whopping four pages are dedicated to ActiveX which is just screen shots of what the MS IDE looks like and an explanation blatantly proclaiming that if the reader wants to learn ActiveX then he or she needs to buy another book. Used car salesman and con artist selling an inferior product use this type of tactic (the Bait and switch). Please heed my warning save your money. Yeah John Swank does it again hopefully he will not do it to you.

Caveat Emptor;Even though states the cd with the files is included - it is not, and the Publisher CMP books wants to charge $5 for the cd and $5 to ship it! What a rip-off!
