Have fun!
In this section, you will find the books that I have consulted to build this C++ Windows programming article. Those books are great and filled with Windows/COM and Outlook programming gems that you should know. It is strongly recommended that you get yourself a copy of these books especially since from time to time, you can find these books at a bargain price. Take the time to check the prices.
