This book is amazing
If Applied .Net Programming is my old testiment of programming, this book is my new testiment. It is full of so many good tips on performance. We have a project going that has 400+ classes and this book helped us out so much in getting better performance out of the app. The benchmark testing framework the author shows is worth the price itself!!!

Compulsory read for all .Net developers.
As a software developer of more than 20 years and having worked in a vast range of languages and O/S's (such as Assembler, C, C++, Delphi and others) this is the type of book I want on my shelf.
The book gives clear understandings of the reasons why one coding approach is either faster or slower than another. Clear simple 'to the point' examples demonstrate the discussion without confusing the issue.
All programmers should be aware of performance issues. It should not become an obsession however, but 'sticking your head in the sand' will hurt your project and will hamper your growth as a developer.
This book along with Ingo Rammer's will be sitting next to my keyboard for a long time to come.

The Bible on .NET Performance
I don't write reports for many books, but I feel compelled to share my thoughts on this one. Maximizing .NET Performance will seriously improve the way I design and write .NET applications, and I cannot suggest it more highly for both beginner and experienced .NET developers alike.
I like the author's introduction: "Processor speed doubles every 18 months, but performance concerns never disappear." How true; it sets the scene that performance is a subjective measure and performance goals need to be agreed upon in absolute terms at the start of any project. The book is filled with clear-cut observations like this, observations that sometime sting with a reality rarely seen in programming reference books.
If performance in a managed environment like .NET is a concern to you, like it was to me, this book is a pretty good read.
