Speedy UIs

Hi, I have recently picked up a book by Andrew King on speeding up webpages. Added together, the hundreds of tips on reducing page sizes and pushing ahead renderings of on-going downloads have giving me a lot of production class help on making better webpages (the best part is the tips are great for non-Dotnet platforms as well, you could benefit from it even if you use FogCreek CityDesk). Are there recent books in print on doing the same for WinForms?

Nin Hao Li Fan,
would you mind to share the title and ISBN of the book (a link to Amazoon would be perfect)
I'm also curious about speeding up Winfoms. From my own suffering I know, that with a few lines of code you can shine ans screw your application's performance. I suspect that -different from webpages- one big area for improving the *preceived* performance will be multi-threading. Of course you open a pandoras box..
