4.0 out of 5 stars Very useful stuff
I found it very useful, simple to understand and it contained some excellent examples - for example chapter 3 is worth a good rating on its own. It's not all amazing stuff in there, but certainly a worthy title, and one that would provide great value to junior and senior developers alike. It also gets stuck right into some of the newer features in C# - which is great...

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy this book unless you want to spend your life trying to understand it...
I bought this book a few days ago. Even I have been using hundreds of development tools in the last 13 years (and as you can imagine I am a Senior Developer), I can't finish to understand the examples or what the author is trying to explain there.

It looks to be that the writer is so clever, but doesn't know how to explain things in an easy way.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very useful stuff, 1 Dec 2008
This review is from: More Effective C#: 50 Specific Ways to Improve Your C# (Effective Software Development) (Paperback)
I found it very useful, simple to understand and it contained some excellent examples - for example chapter 3 is worth a good rating on its own. It's not all amazing stuff in there, but certainly a worthy title, and one that would provide great value to junior and senior developers alike. It also gets stuck right into some of the newer features in C# - which is great because the more recent 3.0 features are very powerful when used appropriately. This book is great at expressing why, and provides simple examples.

To the previous reviewer (the 1 star guy)...if you find this book hard to understand and as you boast 'have been around for 13 years' and call yourself a 'senior developer' then ... perhaps you arent as senior as you think you are? It's not a 5 start book by any means, but 1 star is ridiculous! A truly un-helpful review.

I wouldn't buy this book unless you are part of the .NET framework developer team...
