There's Nothing to be unleashed! BAD BOOK
The Title says "Visual Basic .Net Unleashed"... what a title? if you want to learn Visual Basic .Net, don't buy this book. Can we use definitions in writing programs? I don't think so. I bought this book because of its title but when i started reading it, its only full of definitions, less examples.

Good book for the vb.net language
This is a good book for covering the actual language of vb.net (classes, delegates etc). There isn't much content on creating win or web forms or ado.net for that matter. You will need a separate book if you want to learn these techniques.

too much effort to go thru this one!!
The authors seems to know what he is talking about and
the code looks good. However the downloadable code for
this book does not carry the code to call any of the scripts
in his book.
A separate script is needed and
needs to be written by the reader to call each script and
basically test if his vb.net scripts are execute and run successfully.
This approach forces hands-on approach but seeing how large
the .net framework is, my money would have been better spent
on another book.
With the effort required by this book, it could end up to be
a waste of time if his code doesn't work in the end.
This must be one of the worst books I have purchased ...
