Rachel: My guess is that the reference to "Black Book" is to a series of old books that used to be published by Coriolis. I think some former Coriolis staff continue to publish some but the last one I see is an old ASP.NET 2.0 book:
I'd be skeptical of this not just because it isn't Wrox but also because you don't know "who"wrote it. The authors are listed as a couple of software development firms, my experience as a book editor is that the quality of books written like that can vary a lot.
Their C# 2005 book is listed as out of print:

I can't recall from your other posts with Imar if you prefer VB or C# but depending on your language preference, one of these is probably what you need:
Beginning Microsoft Visual C# 2008
Beginning Microsoft Visual Basic 2008

Good luck!
