I wish to know:

What is the best tutorial book for Windows Sockets programming?

What is the best reference book for Windows Sockets programming?

I really dont wish a theoretical book, but a practical one. (Well, at least for the time being, until I feel confortable with the Winsock API).

Thanks for your time.

Windows Socket Network Programming
by Bob Quinn & Dave Shute

is excellecnt.

Covers winsock 1.1 & 2.0 with examples in C (but easily convertible to win32asm).

Covers the winsock message loop exretemely well.
I used it to write an ftp client which uploads to ftp sites.
The book is a great tutorial and reference (appendices document winsock api functions & index is thorough - easy to lookup to constants/apis you need)
