Kraig Brockschmidt, Microsoft Press, 1995
This is, ah..., where do I begin... this is the book on COM (don't mind the title). It's so respected, so revered, so holy, it almost burns when you touch it. It's also quite heavy, by the way. Nice paper, too. This book teaches you COM with a bare C++ compiler or a bare C compiler. Or assembler. Actually, I think you could write COM objects by toggling frontpanel bit switches if you know this one down cold. Strangely, it's easier to understand than some of the stuff in "Essential COM", which is more recent by years than good ol' Brockschmidt (1995, ancient by COM standards). And yes, it's about "COM", but they didn't know that when this one was published. Marketing at mickeysoft hadn't changed the name yet. (Note in november 2002: I'm still not giving this one a spiderweb icon. It's not over the hill, IMHO.)
