This IS an advanced text -- you need to understand Windows programming
pretty well before you tackle it, if you want to really profit from it.
("nothing too complex", *HAH* -- this SHOWS you have a way to go...: in
Win32 API-level programming, *EVERYTHING* is "too complex"!!!).  It's
also an excellent text; entirely focused on C/C++ usage, but once you
do get the concepts, using them in Python (with win32all or calldll and
the like) is also quite feasible.
