This review is from: C# Programmer's Cookbook (Pro Developer) (Paperback)
When I was at university studying physics, one of my lecturers suggested that "every physicist needs a good A level maths student under the desk."
This book is a bit like having a computer science student in the room.
Need a strongly typed collection? Here you go. Can't be bothered to hack through the different ways of parsing XML files? That's here, too.
Naturally the approach only goes so far. The emphasis is on C# rather than presentation layer questions such as ASP.NET validation or state management: for that, go to one of the O'Reilly books or the .NET Framework docs.
And I wouldn't really recommend this as a way to learn C#, either, as the discussions of the code are rather terse.
But for intermediate programmers who are getting The C# Way internalized, this is a great companion. Definitely worth the shelf space.
