What's a book without reviews these days? I'll try to keep track of what everyone's
writing about the book, but please mail me if
you think I've missed something.
From the back of the book...
- "The definitive what, how, and why of C# 3" - Eric Lippert, Microsoft (from the foreword)
- "Become a C# 3 maestro!" - Fabrice Marguerie, C# MVP and author of LINQ in Action
- "The best C# book I've ever read." - Chris Mullins, C# MVP
- "Clear and concise." - Robin Shahan, GoldMail.com
- "A treat!" - Anil Radhakrishna, ASP.NET MVP
- "Reveals C#'s powerful mysteries" - Christopher Haypt, BuildingWebApps.com
- "So good, it hurts my head." - J. D. Conley, Hive 7 Inc.
- "Enriches the beginner, polishes the expert." - Josh Cronemeyer, ThoughtWorks
From blogs and web magazines...
- "C# in Depth is not just for learning C# 2 and 3; it also serves as a reference work. The result
is that you will become not just proficient in C# 2 and 3, but comfortable in that the more
in-depth coverage helps you to truly understand the language." -
Peter Bromberg, EggHeadCafe
- "Mastering lambdas, anonymous types & Co is something very important for developing a good
programming style and the book will teach exactly that - how to write clean, elegant, beautiful
code given all the power of the C# language." - Kirill Osenkov, Microsoft C# team
"By combining both the C# 2 and C# 3 languages features in a single book with an emphasis on
the evolution of the language, you end up with a clear roadmap of C# and an appreciation and
deeper understanding as to why you are using certain features as you develop." - David Hayden, C# MVP
"If you want to know everything you can about C#...you should pick up a copy of C# in Depth." - Jack Herrington, author
"C# in depth is likely the best book available today to become a better C# programmer" - Patrick Smacchia, C# MVP and author
- "Please simply take my word for it, if you are a C# developer you will be amazed at how much this book can teach you." - Dmitry Lyalin
- "This book is well written, accurate and insightful, and complements nearly every other book out there.
I would recommend it to anyone wanting a thorough 'inside' tutorial on the features new to C# 2 and 3." - Joe Albahari, author of
C# 3.0 in a Nutshell
"If you are looking for a great in depth dissection of the C# language and in particular C# 3.0 this is an absolute must read." - Jean-Paul S. Boodhoo
"An abundant amount of detail is provided on the history of the features and how they evolved into C# 3." - Rhonda Tipton
"... the best C# 2 and C# 3 book out there ... Heck, if you're a development lead then I would seriously suggest getting your boss to buy a copy of this book for every
developer on your team and mandate that it is read - it truly is that good." - Tom Kirby-Green
"If you write code in C#, you should read this book. Highly recommended." - Mitch Wheat
"This is the kind of book I'd been searching for for a a while: a book that only covers the language features instead
of also spending time covering the basic .NET framework features which we’ve all read about more than enough already anyway.
This means that the language features are covered very thoroughly, in a way you probably won't find in any other C# book."
- Davy Brion
"If you're one of those people who dreads cramming for exams but loves
understanding the nitty-gritty of a problem,
then C# in depth is a book you should get your hands on." -
"This is a great book for understanding how some of the more fundamental features of C# are implemented, and how to best use them."
- Jim Holmes
"In this book Jon Skeet provides deep insight into C#. His experience is nicely included in the writing as he goes on the topics
with great care - and the result is this, a first-class book about C#." -
"This is a great book and definitely worth reading, especially if you're as interested in the C# language as I am." -
"Simply put, C# In Depth is perhaps the best computer book I've read." - Craig Pelkie
- "It's not just very good technically, useful and enjoyable to read, it's flawless."
- "It's the most useful one I've come across in a long time. I hardly buy books nowadays because there's so
much detailed info online and most books are just glorified user manuals but this one is definitely a keeper."
"There are a lot of language features introduced in C# 2 and C# 3, and the simple fact is that many of these
generally aren't fully understood by most developers. This book could truly change that."
"C# In Depth is an excellent, bordering on brilliant, examination of C#2 and C#3."
"His writing has the very rare magic of being both concise and compelling."
