I was a freshman in highschool when I encountered the book entitled "Teach Yourself Visual Basic 6 in 21 Days"

I loved that book so much that it took me 4 years to finish it.

    @tinybyte lol! :) I actually have to return the book after 7 days... but I reborrowed it over and over again for 4 years. Perhaps 21 days isn't enough :D

    Took me two years with the same book.
    But I was 10 back then.
    My dad was learning it. The book has a lot of examples which actually make you feel like you're building something.
    Made a phonebook kinda app back then. That day, after seeing my dad's and friends' reaction to it, I decided I'll build apps for the rest of my life!☺️

    It says "2 to 4 years" on the puzzlebox.
    I did it in 4 months! #puzzlegod

    Flashback. Think my GF has that one. When she was using it I told her to use WPF instead of WinForms though.
