seriously, i need a good book,

not shitass responses. People like this david fellow, degrade the board.
again, here is my msg, and thanks again for any assistance!

I am going from learning c++ console apps to windows, and need a good book.
I prefer the non techical approach with some humor (if possible). I would
like the book to assume the reader has NO windows experience. Thank you
ahead of time for any assistance!

Here we discuss standard C++, not Windows.

Your best source, however, is likely the book review section at accu.org
(Association of C and C++ Users), which you can find at:

Naturally, YMMV.

My "personal" opinion on one of the absolute best books around to learn
Windows Game Programming from the ground up is Andrew LaMothe's "Tricks of
The Windows Game Programming Gurus - 2nd Edition". Of course you already
have to have a working knowledge of the C/C++ Language. This book is NOT for
learning the C/C++ language. He cracks small jokes all throughout the book
but this guy knows his stuff man. I got the book and Im up to about chapter
7. It is deep, thick, and intense, but he explains everything very well.
What else can I say.
