Don Box, Addison-Wesley
Widely acclaimed intro to COM. And it's worth it. Except... As Don says in the beginning of the book, there was a choice to be made regarding the use of libraries such as ATL and MFC, and he chose not to base the book on any of them. That may be great, but it also makes the book somewhat less realistic. I, for one, use ATL, since I think life should be more than just learning COM from the ground up. (Where even "up" is a questionable view on the future.) Also, having read Brockschmidt twice, I don't really think I need another one like that, but different. What I mean with all this is that it's a great book full of useful stuff, but it's not the whole story and not sufficient to base your approach to COM on.
