I really like this book! Let me tell you why. It covers a broad scope of the subject of C# with .NET, going into medium depth, and flowing nicely from chapter to chapter. I discovered that it provides both the framework and material for a good self-study program. The author communicates very clearly and provides many example projects with enough detail to let you either use them as tutorials or just read through them.While I often just plunder through online and printed references looking for nuggets of information to solve specific technical problems, that is not how I used this book. Instead, I spent about 4 months working through the book from cover to cover, aiming for more breadth of knowledge on the subject.I bought the printed book, and then bought the eBook from the publisher for a small additional cost. Working through examples, the PDF version was great for reading on a second monitor, cutting and pasting the example code into Visual Studio. (The sample code is also provided as downloadable files.) The printed version was great for back-yard reading with a highlighter, pen, and beverage as supplemental equipment.The example code worked and the text was well-edited and accurate. A few typos in the final chapters caught my eye but were easy enough to read through. There was one important snag in the section on ADO.NET, where Microsoft has deleted the Database Diagrams feature that the author's example relies on to establish the relationships between database tables in a database that is used throughout the remainder of the book. Fortunately there are plenty of online references that will help you to work around this.
