Books recommendations please

Hi

I need to develop winform database applications and wondering is these two
books will get me there;

Data Binding with Windows Forms 2.0: Programming Smart Client Data
Applications with .Net
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Data-Binding...=399925I1FY0N8

Windows Forms 2.0 Programming
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Windows-Form...=399925I1FY0N8

I already have Bill's 'Hitchhiker's guide to VS and SQL Server'.

Any additional recommendations would be appreciated too. Basically anything
that will get me off your backs.

Thanks

Didn't notice you cross posting this in the C# group, but these books
are both in C#.

So if you can't interpret C# to VB then I would recommend finding a
different book. So far I have not found a book that truly explains
how to program, the problem I've found is the authors generally treat
you as if you know nothing at all and you don't learn what you need to
know or the author assumes you know too much and you can't do what
they're showing you due to missing steps.

I personally enjoyed the wrox C# book and the VB one should be good as
well.

I don't know if you are married, but then does your wife always do what you
think that she should do?

What do you expect from the writters, make books which learns everybody what
they don't know yet and make that book after reading without sense?

In fact is that the complete problem, we don't have brainconnectors.
(Except Herfried of course).

The DataBinding book by Brian Noyes is awesome. You might also want to check
out Deborah Kurata's Doing Objects in VB2005. With that book you end up
building an entire application using business objects, including setting up
the stored procs for updating.
