has listed the wrong publication date for this book. It is not 2006 - the actual publciation date is 2002 (and 's correction system won't let you put in the correct date).The reason the publication date is important is that much of the material in this book about managed extensions is outdated and does NOT apply to Visual C++ 2005. For instance, __gc class is now replaced with ref class, tracking handle ^ replaces pointer *, etc. So, if you have old managed code you need to convert to 2005, this book will be of no help. And if you're writing new managed code, this book will lead you in the wrong direction.This is an OK book as a reference for conventional C++. Microsoft needs to publish an updated version for managed code. But I doubt they will since they don't really want us to use C++ (they are pushing us to use their own languages, C# and Visual Basic).
Great purchase experience! Item was exactly what I was expecting.
Good book but ... does not get you anywhere unless you think you can move to India!
