Most Well Writen Computer Book I've Ever Read
Les takes you one step at a time through building an Add-In in Visual Studio .NET. Very easy to follow and understand a complex topic. Since reading this book, I've writen many of my own Add-Ins. I you want to learn and extend VS.NET this is the book to get.
This is a note I sent the the author,
Mr. Les Smith,
I just wanted to send you a note about your awesome book, "Writing Add-ins for Visual Studio .NET."
I bought your book over the web and have consumed it in a few days.
Without any doubt, this book qualifies as the most well written computer book I've ever purchased (I have maybe a hundred programming books.)

Only for beginners
Not recommended for programmers who already developed addins for VB6!
The book mostly consists of listings which are not commented (no CD-ROM is included). The source code is partially adopted from VB6 and does not use the new programming features of VB.net. A lot of pages describe the AddIn wizard which you can also read in the MSDN. This applies also to the described objects and classes. Where I expected additional info to the MSDN the book stops.
Summary: The book only contains information copied from the MSDN but does not explain the objects more precise. Sorry but I have to say: an expensive piece of waste paper.
