Andrew Has Written Another Classic
I've been purchasing books written by Andrew for a number of years. His writing style, examples, and way of explanations, IMHO, are on par with Dino Esposito, Nathan Wahlin, and other well known authors. This book is particularly well suited as a training book for the novice programmer (If read front to end) and as a reference for experience programmers. The only topics I missed are no-touch deployment applications and smart phone applications which are relatively new and may be slightly off-topic for this book. However, if Andrew is writing a revision to this book and includes these and newer topic such as generics I'd LOVE to proof it :) hint hint... Seriously, if you are seeking a good book on C# that covers all the basics of the language and .NET framework, moves into more advanced use of C#, this is the book.

The most used C# book on my desk
This book was the first C#/.NET book that I ever got. My first impression of it was not very good, but after i got over the initial learning curve, I was hooked. Now i use this book to look upeverything about C# and .NET only if I don't find it in here do I look somewhere else.

I don't, however, recommend this book to an absolute beginner. This is more of a intermediate level book.

Keep up the good work
I have read most of Mr. Troelson's books. Chapters include do-it-yourself, clear examples. The book covers .NET platform and gradually develops into more complex chapters.

I have read the COM ATL and the VB.NET books as well. Excellent and please keept the good work Mr. Troelsen.
