As a overall impression of the book, I found it really good, and recommendable to anyone who wish to dive into the more advanced topics of C# 4 and C# 5. While a lot of experienced developers might know various chapters in the book, there's a good chance that there's other chapters you won't know about, and will benefit greatly from reading.

Personally the chapters about IL (Intermediate Language) and Roslyn were the most interesting for me, as they covered areas I've never worked with before.

The short and concise style of the book, and the written style with examples (and results from the examples), makes the book a brilliant read.

I really like this book - Every chapter has a great deal of hands on examples and code.
I recently started my first job as a professional developer, and this book really contains some great info on writing maintainable code. I like the hands-on examples. I feel that many books contain a lot of fill-text and theory, and i was pleasantly surprised about the many code samples in this book.

I am really glad I read this book as I was unsure at first what to expect. The author explained topics really well and the examples were very good, and I could relate them to real life scenarios. Due to the various topics discussed by the author there is a chance you will know a few of them already (however always good to re-read things you think you know), as well as introducing me to a few that I did not know. Of the many programming books I have read in the past year, this is one of my favourite ones.

I purchased this book immediately after seeing the PDF preview version. After reading the table of contents I was really looking forward to what it had to offer.

Regardless of your experience level I think everyone will learn something from this book. However it will probably benefit mid to senior level developers more because they will probably be able to understand and adopt more of the topics covered in this book!

It's a very good set of short and very easy to understand chapters that cover very different subjects with some great and very easy to understand analogies to explain the examples given. I personally found the parallel extensions and although I've done anonymous functions and dynamics before, it was nice (and quick) to read through the short examples just to solidify what I knew already and it always nice to see some code.

The definition of Smörgåsbord is a type of Scandinavian meal served buffet-style with multiple dishes of various foods on a table, originating in Sweden. Which is the perfect title for this book and just how I would describe it. Lots of short chapters with snippets of either examples of coding and\or plenty of discussion about IoC and code rewriting & re-factoring. On the whole I found it a very worth while read and I would be very surprised if it doesn't have something to offer everyone.
