Review - Microsoft Visual C++ Windows Applications by Example

Microsoft Visual C++ Windows Applications by Example: Code and explanation for real-world MFC C++ Applications
The author initially starts the book with basic chapters in C++ , and then goes on to provide samples on Visual C++ . While the examples are good for new learners ; or who want to do their work "fast"  ; this is certainly not a book for those who want to learn Visual C++. 

The book misses out on coverage of dialogs and provide very little  on SDI/MDI - but it provides numerous examples, which shall guide the user in creating an application easily . The examples ( Tetris , Draw ) can surely help to get started, but I dont agree that they are real life examples. The publisher has been kind to share a sample chapter for the readers.

This book shall help in getting a grasp of Visual C++ quickly., but this is not for the experienced users .
