Yesterday I've finally finished reading Jeffrey Richter's last book CLR via C#, 4th edition. I've been getting a copy of this book (buying or being lucky enough to get a review copy) since it was called Applied Microsoft .NET Framework Programming. Each new edition ends up adding new cool stuff and this last edition didn't disappoint. Besides Garbage Collector chapter rewrite, this latest edition introduces the new Reflection API (introduced by .NET 4.5) and presents several new concepts associated with the new WinRT framework. If you're a die hard C# programmer, you should be pleased to know that the book has been updated to illustrate the new C# 5.0 async features introduced by the latest .NET framework release.

So, this is really a book I love and fortunately for us developers, Jeffrey has been doing an excellent job of maintaining and updating it during these last years. In my opinion, this is still the .NET reference book every developer should buy and read. My score: 10/10.

I would divide my career of C# developer in two parts, the one before reading this book and the one after. There is no chapter in this book that didn't disclose something that I didn't know about CLR before. It should be a mandatory read.

This book uses unconventional bottom-up learning technique to give you knowledge what your code actually do behind the scenes. It focuses more on semantics rather on syntax but with plenty of attached examples the syntax is self-explanatory.

I have read previous versions of this book, and they usually get so tatty that they fall apart. Much better now on Kindle. Every few pages I learn something new.

This is a great book if you want to understand the CLR. It dives into the technical details of how the CLR works and tells you the stuff you need to know to be an expert. Jeffrey Richter has been writing deep dive books on programming on the MSFT stack for years now and gives deep and insightful commentary.

This book is not for beginners.
