Don't pay full price. Extremely academic overview of event-based systems, taxonomies of kinds of events, design patterns for event-based programming, etc. A few long examples in C# and VB.NET. Emphasizes multi-machine distributed event-processing systems. Worth a skim to remind yourself why events are great for decoupling modules in a system. You can have my copy if you pass it on.

Kevin Well, I could have used a copy. I have a midterm in 4 days and the prof. told us to reference this book. I don't think I'm going to be able to manage getting the book in the next 3 days.
