A MUST READ for any serious C# developer
I am a long time windows developer going back to version 2.03 and plain old C. This book is simply packed with insight and clearly explained, well articulated Know-how!! It is not, like so many others are, a refactoring of the documentation. The author, Chris Sells, gives you his direct understanding of WinForms and C#. If you are just learning Win Forms, I believe strongly that you are far better served with this book than you would be with something like Petzold's. As much as I owe to Petzold's teachings over the years, I sure wish books like this had existed when I was learning Windows. If you are a journeyman, hardcore developer as I suppose I am, you will appreciate Chris's insights and delivery style even more than the novice. All of the books in this series are at the top of the field and this effort is certainly no exception. I think you will learn far faster, and have much more fun with this text!

Good Windows Forms book
Windows Forms programming in C#, (the title is a little deceptive as it covers more than mere Forms) provides the necessary details to get you going on your projects. I basically bought the book because it covered the GDI+ in detail but I have since found it valuable for authoring controls as well. The book comes with example source code (downloadable from Chris' website) and Chris himself even helped me get over a couple of spots I was having trouble with. Sometimes a book is only as good as its support and Chris does not hesitate in that category. I'm glad I bought the book and I use it as an essential reference.
