Best Intermediate Books

Question:
I understand the basic concepts of computer programming including event driven apps. I have been browsing various Visual Basic sites looking for self teaching book recommendations. Since I'm new to Visual Basic, I choose Peter Norton's Guide to Visual Basic 4 for Windows 95 as my initial book (outside of the supplied Microsoft Visual Basic material). My question is what is the best overall book to purchase after I complete the Peter Norton book?

Answer:
It depends what you want to get into next. I'd probably recommend a database or object-oriented programming book for VB. Deborah Kurata has written a good book on building classes in Visual Basic. You might also want to look at a book about how to use the API, since it is an important feature most people don't even touch. I'd recommend Daniel Appleman's guide to the Win32 API for VB Programmers.
