I now have nine of these reference guides and this is probably the best! I think it might almost be possible to learn the language from this book alone (given prior confidence in another language).
I chose this book because it was a 'pocket' reference, so I assumed I could get the basics from it and then flesh out the rest from scouring the web. However, to my surprise, this book is far more than a pocket reference. After a brief explanation of each subject, it then gives you one or more examples in a very simple manner so you are not unduly confused, rather than trying to show a complete application every time.
If you already know some c# then this book is probably ok just to keep as a reference. But if, like me, you are new to it, you can't go far wrong reading this first.
In summary, if you are learning c#, you need this book.
