C# to VB.NET book?

I am looking to pick up VB.NET.  I come from C++/Java/C# book, and need to learn the syntax for VB.NET.  I had an absolutely miserably time on a short VB6 project, because I didn't know the syntax very well.  Can someone recommend a good book on learning VB.NET syntax coming from my background?

I haven't learnt VB -- I won't get into it (because I may offend some people), but a mate of mine can recommend this:
"Vb .net Language In A Nutshell"

How about this?  I think so far the others are for a new learner and you are certainly not new to programming but rather need a conversion reference.

"C# and VB .NET Conversion Pocket Reference" Published by O'Reilly
ISBN: 0-596-00319-6

Hope that helps!

Yeah, I think the conversion is what I need.

I have seen language translators out there to switch code between C# and VB.NET.... aside from unmanaged code in C#, is there anything that can't be translated?

I would recommend the Microsoft certification books as they have the C# and VB .NET examples side by side:
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0735619255/qid=1100660621/sr=1-6/ref=sr_1_6/102-5685762-0014528?v=glance&s=books
They can be purchased seperately or in a pack.  It is much cheaper to get the pack.
