Which .NET book / books would you HIGHLY recommend? Especially related to VB.NET. I have seen a couple good ones, used a few I would not recommend, but wonder what others would recommend.

Dont get "VB.NET - A Developer's Guide from Syngress".  I helped write that one...and it's pretty lame...haha.

Seriously though, WROX is generally a pretty good source.  I would start with them or APress...those guys have put out some good stuff as well.
