Format: Paperback
A must have for any professional software developer who wishes to make a living from the .NET Framework.
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.

Except for the use of the invented word parameterful, I can't find one thing about this book that isn't excellent.
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.

This is easily the most easy to read .NET framework book that I've seen. It's a great reference and is so well formatted that it's easy to simply read right through, largely due to the fact that the chapters are nice and small so it doesn't feel like hard work. One thing to note though is that ALL the code samples are in C#.

I wasn't sure that I would need this book, I figured that a book on C#, one on ADO.net and another on ASP.Net would give me enough information to move to C# but I bought it anyway and haven't been able to put it down since.
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.

Format: Paperback
A very good book on .NET Framework programming written in a very lucid style which should be understandable to anyone with a reasonable background in a high-level object-oriented language. In particular, the sections on value and reference semantics, the garbage collector and delegates are extremely good. Back it up with a copy of Inside .NET IL Assembler and you have a very complete resource on the Framework.

I'm often very critical of books' weaknesses, and many of my reviews on Amazon have at least a huge "but" clause... for this book, though, there is no such clause.
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.
