5.0 out of 5 stars You want to know C#? Then buy this., 20 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Firstly, a disclaimer.

I know Ian (a little bit), and we've shared the odd beer and cab.

However, Ian is one of the best and most knowledgable authors and speakers that I have ever had the privilege of knowing. Not only does he understand the technology, he is able to clearly relay the "why" as well as the "what" and "how". His book moves along at a suitably brisk pace, and covers all the bits of the language and technology that you need to know, to the point that you can travel freely and more deeply into the various specialised areas of WPF, or WinRT, or ASP.NET, or whatever.

A worthwhile book that every .NET developer should be able to get their hands on, just so that they can go back and refresh their knowledge from time to time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Recommended for experienced Programmers used to OO languages, 12 July 2014
This review is from: Programming C# 5.0: Building Windows 8, Web, and Desktop Applications for the .NET 4.5 Framework (Paperback)
This is not a book for beginners to learn C#, but is a good programmers reference especially if you have written in object oriented languages before (e.g. C++). I am finding it authoritative and well written and able to dip in for the bits I need without reading the whole book end to end.

4.0 out of 5 stars I was slightly disappointed with this one, 13 Nov. 2014

This review is from: Programming C# 5.0: Building Windows 8, Web, and Desktop Applications for the .NET 4.5 Framework (Paperback)
Absolutely crammed with information on C# 5.0 though, having bought the two previous editions, I was slightly disappointed with this one. There's now so much information that I found some of the chapters hard to follow.
