4.0 out of 5 stars A good way to async if you already know C#, 1 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Async in C# 5.0 (Paperback)
I have been working with C# since version 1.0 and have gone through 2.0, 3.0 and 4.0 I wanted something that would cover the async stuff in in C# 5.0 without getting a full book on C# 5.0. This fits that bill nicely.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good introduction to async, 5 Mar 2014

This review is from: Async in C# 5.0 (Kindle Edition)
The book gives a good introduction to asynchronous programming in .NET and especially on the async / await keyword and how the compiler translates this into continuations. The book tends to describe UI / web uses cases, and I would have liked more content on pure server / console use cases and best practices around it.

I like this book.
Usually O'Reilly books are hard going because it's difficult to dip in and out of them, but this one is very concise.
The chapters are short but packed with the information that you need and the author stays on topic. He doesn't stray into semi autobiography like so many of these guys do.
There are a few grammatical and spelling errors at the start of the book which I found a little annoying, but the content is good and the author clearly knows this subject.
Definitely worth reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Concise and useful book, 25 Feb 2013

This review is from: Async in C# 5.0 (Kindle Edition)
This book is concise but rich in information that you need, leaving aside useless "use-cases", "tutorials" and "how-to guides" that most of the time have little resemblance to what's occurring in real life.

It is not a book for beginners, though. The reader must be quite well versed in C# in general and .NET multi-tasking in particular.

A must buy to grasp the latest that C# 5.0 brings.
