A book you'll keep going back to,
This review is from: C# in Depth (Paperback)
Jon Skeet is the Stephen Fry of C#. He's clearly a very clever chap indeed, but he shares his wisdom in such a charming and friendly way that, instead of feeling overawed and discouraged, you're left feeling inspired and confident.
I bought this book because I wanted to get to grips with LINQ, so I went straight to Part 3, but I soon realised there were plenty of things in the first two parts that I needed to know first. Reading the book from the beginning was a revelation. I converted from C++ to C# when it first appeared. Although I've tried to keep my knowledge up-to-date I was amazed how many newer features of the language had passed me by. Some sections are quite straight forward, but others need more attention. If you get stuck try compiling a few examples of your own then going back and re-reading the section. Even if you need to do this several times over it's time well spent.
I feel I've only scratched the surface of the material in this book so far. I bought the paper version of the book, and then downloaded the free PDF version which is sitting on my laptop at work. I'm sure I'll be going back to it over and over again for a long time to come.
