"[This is] one outstanding book on practical .NET development. The chapter on Events is worth the price of admission alone. The chapter on Versioning is excellent as well, but the rest of the sections are every bit as good...Summary: if you are into creating top-quality .NET software you should own this book."

"Juval Lowy's 'Programming .Net Components' is the Harry Potter for .Net developers...I found '[Programming].Net Components,' however, to be a real page turner. Seriously! I ran through it in a week..I consider it the best.Net book I've read, and I've read a lot of them."

"'Programming .NET Components' by Juval Löwy provides practical advice for learning how to build robust real-world application with .NET, and will help you conquer complexity...the book is a wealth of information for all the key system essentials that you need to understand and master to build well-designed applications...Programming .NET Components models the good design principles it teaches; it's well organized and easy to read. Löwy presents information ranging from basic to advanced without ever getting bogged down in too much detail...And somehow he manages to cover this wealth of information in about 400 pages, saving you from lugging another phone book-sized reference tome around like many programming books."

"If you're looking for a book that is low on fluff and written in a very relaxed, conversant style I highly recommend 'Programming .NET Components.'"

"I have purchased, literally hundreds, and I mean hundreds of technology books over the last 20 years, and this may be the best. This work addresses not only how one builds software but why, and provides clear insight into the design goals of component technology from early Windows dll(s), to the current Microsoft .Net Framework. This is the 'Rosetta Stone' of Microsoft .Net."--Randall S. Young, Amazon.com Customer Reviews, May 2003
