Fantastically Well Written,
This review is from: C# in Depth (Paperback)
C# in Depth 2nd Edition is the most well written book on C# I've read. The author manages to explain some difficult concepts in clear, meaningful ways with useful examples. I could always understand where and why I'd utilise certain aspects of C#.
I don't think the book is targeted at beginners ('in depth' gives that away) but the friendly, sometimes humorous language is always engaging - it sometimes felt like I was reading a novel which is a real credit to the author.
The author's expertise in the language shines through and I found the book answering each and every question I had - usually in the next sentence. I found the section of generic and interface variance particularly useful as it's a topic I've tried to understand previously - but failed. I was slightly disappointed to find there was nothing on the Task Parallel Library but it's understandable given that it's part of the .Net library not the language itself.
I'd recommend this book for any C# developer wanting to up their game by appreciating a deeper understanding of the language features that are often underused or misunderstood.
