Children and teens represent a good portion of this new breed of Internet users.

It's especially irritating and not the author's fault, of course that none of several fairly extensive professional reviews mentioned the book's total lack of information about Macs or Linux boxes. I'm not disagreeing with other reviews praising this book; I can see that it would be very useful to a Windows user; in fact I have another daughter who IS a windows user, and I'm going to give her the book.
What I am saying is that it's of only the thinnest marginal use to Mac and Linux users like me.
Children: Young Adult Gr. Reviews 4 A excellent guide to writing windows applications. Here's what I liked:easy to understand narrative, lots of examples, and a complete structural understanding of windows programming. This is the best book I have seen for Visual Basic.
