Peter Norton's Guide to Visual Basic 6
Peter Norton's books are well-known for their "rapid tour guide" approach: a hands-on overview of the possibilities of the programming environment that does not burden the impatient reader with excessive technical baggage at the outset of his voyage of discovery.
Building upon the Basic language that has introduced so many to programming in general, Visual Basic has succeeded in providing an easy visual approach to the once formidable challenge of Windows programming. Even Windows programmers find it more practicable to prototype their applications in Visual Basic before resorting to a more efficient and flexible language like Visual C + +. Peter Norton's Guide to Visual Basic 6 teaches all the complexities of application design in an easy-to-understand style that experienced computer users will appreciate. The book covers both the Standard and Professional editions of Visual Basic.
