Alex P doesn’t like this book. He is absolutely entitled to his opinion. What I don’t understand is his position that Francesco Balena has no credibility and that his position as an RD is of little value. Balena is a well known and respected author in the .NET world as well as pre-.NET Visual Basic. And RD’s aren’t selected based only on their good looks. 😉 Many of them also happen to be some of the top in their field technically, which is why Microsoft allows them to represent MS as such. I see nothing wrong with expressing one’s opinion, but I think the [unjustified and unqualified] personal attack is pretty crappy.
