This review is from: Pro C# 2010 And The .NET 4.0 Platform 5th Edition (Paperback)This book is really first rate. One of the best books on .Net I have read to date (and I've read quite a few...)
It does suffer from the same problem of many of the .Net 4.0 books though. There needs to be a separate companion book that serves as an upgrade in the series. So instead of just having a ~1600 page book that covers .Net 1.1,2.0,3.5 and 4.0. I would like to see a companion book that details only the changes between 3.5 and 4.0. Otherwise, if you have already read the 3.5 version of the book, then you're wasting time reading stuff you have read before, lugging around a much heavier book, and paying more for information you already know. Not to mention the trees!
