Comments from Reviewers & Readers

"Your book Programmer's Guide to the OS/2 Presentation Manager is very well written, perhaps the best book I have used in 1989. The author appears to have a very clear visualization of how people will actually use the book. In particular, he starts from ground zero and systematically builds up the necessary concepts and vocabulary to say what he has to say. Every sentence is understandable, without forward references. Time and again, there are sentences inserted into the text which appear to have been added at exactly the point where someone could become confused...", Robin Tivy, Vancouver, B.C., Canada

"Excellent book," Dieter Ludwigs, Karlstein, West Germany
