This is not a C#, VB or even IL book. Quite simply, it is an authoritative inspection of the .NET CLR and parts of the FCL, exposing the particulars, nuances and idiosyncrasies of programming for the CLR.
As such, the book expects you to have prior experience of programming, and the C# examples are used to demonstrate several CLR/GC/FCL concepts rather than teach coding.
Java programmers will find some information pretty familiar, (strings, garbage-collection, value types vs objects, implementation vs interface inheritance etc.), - and may even be somewhat annoyed that there is very little reference to Java here. (You know why).
Nonetheless this is an excellent book which is not going to be slated by anyone who shuns mediocrity.
The author examines the .NET framework with the throughness of a real enthusiast, - the book is full of gems and no true professional should embark on a major/serious .NET project without first examining this book in depth.
It gives detailed, yet easily digested explanations of every aspect of the .NET framework from the ground up. The CLR, CTS, framework libraries, execution engine, it even details the layout of executable files.
This is the best .NET framework book I've read and I can't see many others coming close to it, with perhaps the exception of Don Box's much anticipated book Essential .NET.
The author manages to take some fairly complex concepts and make them very easy to understand, I don't think I've had to re-read any section yet.
I am convinced that reading this book will have significantly increased my effectiveness in producing .NET solutions.
If you want to know about the potential gotchas before they get you, about good design, when to use certain features, and how it all works underneath (very important if you're building serious apps) then buy this book right now. It is well written, concise, precise, and complete. VB.NET fans note, though, that all the examples and much of the discussion is C# specific.
I don't say it often about books, but this was worth every penny.
