    The prices above are from however
    most local book stores should be able to get or may
    have in stock the books that I mentioned.

    See the samples directory under your PB version, there
    are several examples of API style programming.

    I suggest you start out with Petzold because he does
    a good job in the basics. Rector/Newcomer gets down
    into the bowels of Window programming. Note that all
    the example coding in these books are in C/C++, but
    don't let that intimidate you. Translating to PB will
    become quiet easy after a short period of time and you'll
    pickup on some C programming as a bonus.

    I don't know if these books are available in the format
    you want, but hard copy is the only way to go here.

        I would like to recommend another book. While I also have the two
        books mentioned by Lance and Cecil, I actually prefer the one listed
        below since I find it a little easier to read and learn from.

        "Windows 98 Programming from the Ground Up"
        by Herbert Schildt
        Osborne McGraw-Hill, 1998
        cover price: $34.99 in USA

        I believe I got it from at 20% discount

          Thanks for the recommendation... I've updated the FAQ to include this book with a couple of URL's to Fatbrain & Amazon.
