  • Visio Inside Out (editions for Visio 2002 and 2003): Though there are by now several end-user books available, this is the one that gets my vote as most comprehensive.
  • Developing Visio Solutions book.  Don't miss this, it's the official developer book from Visio -- it ships on the Visio CD (V2000), is available online, and is also be purchasable in paper form.  Essential.
