Visual Basic.NET books

One of my friends wants to start of with VB.net and was asking me for book recommendations. She has around 3 years of experience in Java.

Before I made my recommendations I wanted some feedback.

Deitel's books - I feel this is a little too introductory
Mike Gunderloy's Certification Books - though these are certification books - the coverage of material is excellent.

I remember hearing good things about Francesco Balena’s Programming Microsoft Visual Basic .NET - anyone has used this book or what would your recommendation be?

Thanks.
