Beware this book is just about language or rather its evolution. You will not find here basic information about condtional sentences, loop, primitive types and so on. Here you will get information how language evolved, why new features were introduced, and how they were implemented. I enjoyed this book because it explained those thnigs to me, so it will help me to use them properly.

If you look for something to begin your adventure with C# go for 'Essential C#' by Mark Michaelis, or for more advanced users 'C# in Nutshell' by Joseph Albahari.
Illustrated WPF (Expert's Voice in .NET) by Daniel M. Solis
This is really an excellent book. I wish I would start my WPF adventure with it. It is so clear and consistent. Although I have almost 2 years experience with WPF I still found it very informative and useful. There is so many pictures illustrating ideas it very useful for reviewing. Basically you take a look on the picture and memory comes back. I wish more book would be written this way.
Framework Design Guidelines: Conventions, Idioms, &hellip by Krzysztof Cwalina
5.0 out of 5 stars Learn from the best, 26 Jun 2013
This book is unique. It allowed me to improve my coding style. It tought me how to write a code, which will be what .NET developers expect in terms of usage. Lots of comments from other developers who affected .NET, so you should be able to understand why they made specific choices. Bear in mind it is about creating frameworks and libs, so some guidelines are not valid for end user apps!
