Goodman's Windows NT is a good place to start learning the Win32 application programming interface (API). Win32 is important in making Windows NT a success; it acts as an interface between the operating system and applications. Goodman describes the advantages and disadvantages of Win32 in ten chapters and a diskette, explaining his subject at a judicious pace and adding just the right examples to help you understand the topic at hand. Chapters describe processes; how programs work in Windows NT, with quite a nice explanation of the use and misuse of threads; programming with 32 bits instead of a mere mortal 16 bits; importing applications to Win32; and utilizing the features of Win 32's graphics design interface (GDI). Security, remote procedure calls, memory management, and console applications are also addressed. Windows NT throws the programming window wide open, and Goodman's offers an excellent review of this new, expanded environment for programmers. But it's definitely not for the lighthearted or inexperienced.
