I'm debating between reading the new and the old Beer House books. Is there anyone out there that has read both of them? If so, can you please share some insight on your experience with them. There seem to be a lot of issues with the new one, way more
than the old one. If I do the new one then I would be doing it in C# even though it is written in vb.
Does anyone have any opinions?

There was only one book on Beer House Project.
I have experience in creating and learning from the book.

There are two Wrox books that use the Beer House site. The first one was written by Marco Bellinaso. The second was written by Chris Love.
This is a link to the one written by Chris Love
I read some very mixed reviews about this one and decided not to read it. The main reason for this is that it is written in VB not C#.

I was excited when I heard about the new book by Chris Love as there is not much out there for VB'ers. I must say, what a disappointment. I can't return it because I marked on the
book. The cover is torn as well as several other pages due to my frustration with it.
To make matters worse... you get no help on the forum at
It is very unfair to put a book out like this. It should be taken off the shelves and republished after it's been fixed. Thanks Chris for taking my money! (for nothing in return)
I most certianly will not purchase a book that has his name on it again. I am not alone in my opinion.
What have I learned? I've learned never to buy a book that just came out. Rather, give it time for over
victims to complain or praise a book (hehe).

I read a lot of reviews of people with the same type of experience. Wrox is one of my favorite publishing companies and Chris is a really nice guy. It's a shame they couldn't get it together for that book.
