I always used to by books from Wrox when I was doing COM and ATL programmming. After the company moved away from COM and C++ the obvious choice was C# .Net. Without any hesitation I chose this book as I was a Wrox press die hard fan. But oh boy I got really dissapointed after reading this book. This book is based on explaining a lot of examples and trying to teach things with examples in most of the cases. It is not for someone who is a professional and wants to get into the C# and .Net world. This book contains a series of syntax errors which are truely far from the standars set by Wrox press books.

It's a very big book with lots of information and, in particular, lots of sample code - which is good.

I've only read a few chapters so far but I'm a little disappointed with a number of omissions. Tuples are given half a page, TextReader/ Writer are not mentioned at all, Serialization is not covered (although XML serialization might be). I've noticed a number of errors so far.

Apart from the first few chapters it doesn't seem to introduce topics - it just assumes that you know the subject, and then only delves into certain aspects.

So, very much a mixed bag, and I'm having to supplement my reading with the (excellent) 'C# in a Nutshell'.

I still recommend it though, but it couldn't be used as a single resource - despite its size.

I've been developing continually in .net since release 1.0 back in early 2002 (in VB.net initially), and have been using C#.net since 2005, so I was already pretty familiar with the various releases of the framework, and with C#. This comprehensive book still managed to teach me things I didn't previously know. The simple and logical layout, with both brief and detailed chapter listings, also made it easy to identify and skip to the sections covering those parts of the language that I needed to brush up on. Wrox books, written as they are by real-world developers for other real-world developers, are ordinarily good, and I've got quite a collection of them at home, including ones that had been written for previous releases of C#. This book is a cut above the usual, though, even within that high calibre field. There isn't much to know that isn't in here. I highly recommended it, for brand new and experienced developers alike.

Excellent book and fairly complete with a nice and easy to read format. I bought this mainly as a reference so its contents we're well suited for this purpose as well as general learning. I did find the text somewhat small but it does cram a lot of information in one place which I like.

Unfortunately not all the chapters are in the hard copy, some of the other more advance topics are available online only.

Highly recommended, but there is a newer edition out with more update to date chapters.

Very broad coverage of using C# in with .net 4. Coverage of new features like MEF, the new features of XAML and WPF and a good section on visual studio 2010. So far I have not found anything I need to find out more about that is not in the book. Definately worth the money.

This book covers most aspects of C# and .NET on Windows. It is a good book overall if you are getting started with C# and .NET. There are some additional chapters available online (GDI+, Directory services, LINQ to SQL, etc) which in my opinion should be in paper. They only thing I miss is more information on C# on Unix (Mono), there is barely a mention to it.
