The Component Object Model (COM) is deep and extremely difficult, making it impossible to grasp the ideas behind this specification quickly or easily. Don Box, the author of Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars boring, just read chapter 1 and look for another one.
It takes me 3 years to finish this book, only first chapter is very good;
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book on COM!
This is a must have book for anyone doing COM programming.The great Don Box is a brilliant developer and an excellent writer.This book covers all aspects of COM and gives the reader the critical information that is clouded by the Microsoft tools.

4-0 out of 5 stars Is COM really this complicated?
After reading this book, only two possibilities exist.Either Don Box has made COM more difficult than it needs to be, or it really is this difficult.

4-0 out of 5 stars A must read for CLR Insight
If you havn't read this book, Buy it! I really enjoyed the style, flow, and great insight into the CLR.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent but
only for advanced readers. If you are a beginner, you may get lost. I had to read a couple of times to get 100%. Excellent. Some concepts are pretty difficult to understand.

5-0 out of 5 stars Solidify your understanding
This is not the book to dive into first if you want to really get .NET. It's actually a fairly interesting mixture of what I now consider obvious and what I never stopped to consider. If you are just starting out, I would begin with Richter's book, and then digest this one quickly afterwards. There is a significant amount of overlap, but your final understanding will be very balanced. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Don Box , please stop!
Like all the stuff Don Box wrote and published, this book is yet 2-0 out of 5 stars This is not the best Don Box, sorry
My impression is that Don Box is missing the mathematical bases to write this kind of ambitious books. There are big mistakes that show how he is missing a solid background on "graph theory" and mathematics. In my personal opinion he is a lot better writing about programming and should avoid this kind of topics.

1-0 out of 5 stars What a let-down!
I ordered this book without even thumbing through it - that's how much faith I had in Don Box after reading his other books in this series.What a disappointment!This book is poorly organized, rife with errors and doesn't seem to have any discernable target audience.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Read this book after Essential COM
Essential COM explains how COM really works but when it comes to specific problem you can't figure out what is the best solution to it. Effective COM goes further and presents good COM programming practices. It also clarifies some material from the former book that has not been explained in sufficient depth or lacks specific examples. However the chapter about security is not sufficient. If you are interested in COM security you must read another excellent book "Programming Windows Security" by Keith Brown.

3-0 out of 5 stars Demise of DCOM
This book was meant to help readers do DCOM more efficiently. But after learning about the gory details and ever-shifting underlying plumbings which may well defeat all one's efforts, the only conclusion is DCOM should never be hyped. Java and .Net are the far better solutions. Don't even mention the DCOM security stuff that make it a hell across domains.5-0 out of 5 stars Best Practices for COM Development!Very practical!
Your looking for a book that will make you a more productive COM developer, get this one immediately. ... Read more
