“Shining a bright light into many of the dark corners of C# 3.0, this book not only covers the ‘how,’ but also the ‘why,’ arming the reader with many field-tested methods for wringing the most from the new language features, such as LINQ, generics, and multithreading. If you are serious about developing with the C# language, you need this book.” –Bill Craun, Principal Consultant, Ambassador Solutions, Inc.

While the book may be very effective for advanced users, it is of little use to starting to intermediate level programmers. The title say there are 50 specific way to improve your c#, I found none. Admittedly, I have only working with C# for a year, but I would have thought that at lease one item would apply to me.

Spend your money on another book unless you are alot further along than I am.

This book is the difference between a programmer who knows C# and becoming a true C# "craftsman". Absolutely recommended!

Mark Downes said
This book makes assumptions that you know a lot of the ins and outs of the language and is not setup such that you can read through the material from cover to cover. The author is knowledgeable and the book is best used as a reference book when you have specific questions or concerns.

This is a must have for C# developers. I could ramble on and on about the book, yada yada... buy it, you'll be thankful you did. This book can take average programmers and make them into very capable programmers. This book belongs in your arsenal.

Anyone who is writing C# on a daily basis has to read this book. In 50 very easy to read short modules, Bill shows you how to improve your C# code. I have been coding with C# since 2002 and I learned many new techniques about Generics and the new language features from 3.0. With LINQ, I *finally* know why an implicitly typed local variable is better and the implications of not using IQueryable. A wealth of knowledge. After you read your C# 101 books, read this one next! It will make you a better developer.
