Sugestions wanted (Win32 API programing)
This is not a product review but I thought this was the best place to fit my inquiry. I am learning Win32 API programming with C and am wanting to know if anyone here has read any of these books, or simular books and can give me a recomendation on what to buy.
I have done much searching here at Antionline and found some posts about Win32 API programing. I have also used google and have come up with some book names. I am looking for a good book on Win32 API programing with C or C++.
I found some books that I am looking into:
Programing Windows, The definitive guide to the Win32 API, by Charles Petzold.
Programming Microsoft Visual C++ (but I dont know if this is what I realy want.)
Programing Applications for Microsoft windows.
These are all books I am looking into. I could problably get some sample chapters too, to make sure it is what I want.
But my question is has anyone read any of these books or simular books and can you recomend a book for me to buy.

Get Petzold's book. You can't go wrong. Even though it's been published by MS, believe me, it's probably the best book on Win32 API programming out there.
