decent beginner's tutorial
If you just want to spend the bucks to quickly get started with C# without understanding it much, this book will help. It covers a lot of ground fast, but very much on the surface. Unfortunately, examples often do not prove the point and events example was more erroneus than helpful. And this book is virtually useless later on as a reference material, because the material is not well organized and depth is missing.

Great book
I recently had to get up to speed on C# fast for a graduate course I was taking and I bought this book. I found this book to be a great primer for the language. Coverage of the basics of the language is very throrough; with the one exception of somewhat weak coverage of collections. Oberg's explanations and examples are simple, clear, and to the point throughout the book. By the end of the book Oberg has you coding a multi-threaded banking program, and it barely feels like work! If you are serious about learning to program in C#, get this book!!!

Foundations for OOP, C#, and .NET Framework
This is the only C# book I currently own, but after reading the reader reviews, this one seemed a good choice. It is 2 weeks later, and I have finished going through the book and the downloaded code examples that come along with the book. There is not much I can add to all the praise the other readers have given this author and this book, but let me say, "I agree!".

I think this book is the best "Intro to ... " book I've ever read. I needed to not only learn C# and the .NET Framework, but OOP in general. Robert J. Oberg's Introduction to C# Using .NET book teaches all these things in a very natural way that makes it easy. I've learned more reading this book over the past week than I learned in the $1700 5 day Intro to C# class I attended using Microsoft training material.
