it was ok

Like almost all "huge" programming books, it contains 50% useful information and 50% filler.

If you are a total beginner, then this is a good book to start with.

It does a decent job of teaching Windows C++ even though it may be too wordy and not teach concepts as much as how to use the library.

If you're looking for a compact book that will give a good overview so you'll be able to figure out future stuff without continually referencing a book index then this book isn't the one.
