For years, programmers worldwide have sworn by Dan Appleman's 1500-page tutorial  . The first version was released back in those halcyon days of VB's youth, when DOS was still a buzzword and 4MB of RAM was an acceptable computer specification. Since then, the book has progressed.

Dan Applemen shows you how to translate C and C++ based Win32 documentation to Visual Basic, how to port 16-bit applications to 32-bits, and how to design applications to run on different versions of Windows.

Covers window management, drawing operations, advanced process control, interprocess communication techniques, and translation

After several recommendations I found on the internet, I spent the $40.00+ and purchased the book. Very disappointing. Many of the declarations found in the code are never explained - some are never even mentioned, even though they reside in the demo code. Constant references to his "Spyworks" software in the book and megabytes wasted on the CD with self-serving "testimonials" and hawking of his software - complete with video! What a waste. I kept thinking that the CD would have been an excellent tool for highlighting the more difficult complexities in the book with either audio/video or audio only explanations, but instead I watched an infomercial on a product I will never buy. In addition - on my system at least - some of the demo programs crashed. "MenuLook", as an example, gave me page-fault-arama whether it was run straight from VB5, or even compiled and then run. IMHO, that's complete horse pudding. At least make sure the demo will run before you put the price sticker on, and cheerfully hand me the book. In a word - disappointing.
I rate a book primarily on the index, and this reference has the mother of them all. But, it doesn't point you to specific pages that show an EXAMPLE, only the page that has the DESCRIPTION. So you may know that you need to use SetWindowPos, and you know what it does, but you need the example, the index is useless for that. I didn't count, but it seems that there are only examples in the book for about 75% of the API calls. I realize that is a significant amount, but what about the other 25%? If you need an example, you need an example, and a self-proclaimed "Programmer's Guide to the Win32 API" shouldn't have gaping holes. I have the book, but it's sitting in a corner with "Teach Yourself Database Programming with VB5 In 21 Days". I prefer to talk to people on newsgroups or IRC to get samples of API calls. At least that way I can question what's going on and get interactive help, and I know it's going to be relevant.
With just a few statements, you can have access to the kind of functionality that used to belong to only C/C++ programmers. By tapping into the core of Windows itself, you can avoid re-inventing the wheel in many cases. This book is THE source to turn to when dealing with the Windows API. I dont rate it a 10 because although it covers API Registry functions, it dosent mention the "inconsistencies" that are present in the Registry and how to get around them using Visual Basic and the Windows API.

In depth coverage of Win32 API for the VB programmer. Dan covers a lot of material and goes a step further to explain background, syntax, usage, and other material so that you can continue to use this knowledge to explore the API on your own. Plenty of great examples and materials on the CD. However, unless you are expecting to do a fair amount of work with the API, you may find this book too involved for the novice programmer.
This book is probably the only must-have reference book for any real VB shop. This is the only descriptive source for VB programmers on the Win32 API, (unlike Vis C++, MS doesn't supply VB Programmers anything but the API declerations) and any serious VB programmer (yes, even 5.0) will eventually need to dig down into windows -so, unless you have an encyclopedic knowledge of the Win32API, this book is a MUST HAVE.
GET THIS BOOK! It was definitely worth every penny I spent and more. I covers nearly the entire Windows 32-bit API through excellent examples with complete code listings, and it also functions as a reference: the end of each chapter contains a list of declarations with descriptions of the functions. When I bought the book, I knew it would be good, but it turned out to be better!
I was searching for weeks for a particular function. I got some good ideas from some helpful people on the Net, in fact I was pointed to the right function. But nobody could give me the specifics on the syntax until this book!! In five minutes, I had my problem solved and my program working beautifully. This book is definitely worth the money!
I really enjoyed reading this book to get up to speed on Win32 programming before jumping into Visual C++. For any Visual Basic programmer who would like to get the most out of a program, the Win32 API is a must, and this book clearly shows how to call on the Win32 API for maximizing the potential of any Visual Basic project.
