...you should find a spot for this book within comfortable reach of your work area.
I am not going to say much about this book except that I wish I had had it several years ago. It would have helped with quite a few questions that I have received. This is not surprising because it is basically FAQs for programmers using Visual C++ (though generally the answers are perfectly applicable to those using MFC with other compilers).
If you do much programming with MFC and find that you want to do things that VC++ wizards do not provide (or you use compilers such as Metrowerks' CodeWarrior) you should find a spot for this book within comfortable reach of your work area.
