Default About Ivor Horton's book

I picked up a copy of Visual C++ 6 off of Ebay. Mostly what I plan on doing is writing console programs just to reacquaint myself with the C++ language. To write even simple GUI programs using Visual C++ 6 seems very complicated to me. Is Ivor Horton's book on Visual C++ 6 pretty decent? My only experience with making GUI's is with Visual Basic 6. It would be nice to learn how to create some simple programs using Visual C++ 6 too but as I said it appears pretty complex.

It is a difficult subject. You are right about the complexity. What do you thing of it now? I am at the end of chapter 19 and in trouble with an image viewer. It took me a long time to get to the end of chapter 19. You need to download the source codes and errate.
