I Have Adam's Book!

Just wanted to say that I got Adam Nathan's COM Interp book, and I'm already taking notes as to what I need to blog about. :) It's already answering questions that I've had, and while I thought what I was recently reading was going to give insight into the problems I had previously, it just skirted the issue and said "More in Chapter 7, 20, and 24".

This book is huge. We're talking bigger-than-the-Bible huge. So big, they wouldn't bind it with just one binding. No, they bound it as two seperate tomes. Tomes of arcane COM knowledge. ;)

Although I'm only into chapter 4, I can tell this book has what I need. Heh, well, I've also heard that if this book doesn't have the answers to your COM-interop questions, then no other book will, soooo. :) It hasn't been updated for .NET 2.0/3.0/3.5. I'm curious to know if any of the version-specific remarks Adam makes regarding the implementation of the SDK at the time of his writing have changed. I would guess the answer is "not much" because who would miss the chance to write a second edition!? :D

Anyway, before I go, does anyone else think it's kinda weird the way I just happened to have "N" post-it notes for Adam *N*athan's book?
