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.
