Don't expect any deep dive topics here, however this book is perfect for the bits of C# you haven't used yet and wanted a 'Getting Started' guide on how a feature works, or just a quick reference.

The explanations are clear and to the point and many topics are covered.

As a overall impression of the book, I found it really good, and recommendable to anyone who wish to dive into the more advanced topics of C# 4 and C# 5. While a lot of experienced developers might know various chapters in the book, there's a good chance that there's other chapters you won't know about, and will benefit greatly from reading.

Personally the chapters about IL (Intermediate Language) and Roslyn were the most interesting for me, as they covered areas I've never worked with before.

The short and concise style of the book, and the written style with examples (and results from the examples), makes the book a brilliant read.
