Format: Paperback
In a word...WOW! There is such a wealth of info in this book. Direct for the source, one of the performance architects of the CLR (among other authors). This book is a must have for any developer who writes high use web apps or web services. The book goes into so much detail, and explains why one coding method is more efficient than another. Probably not a good beginner book, you should have a good grasp on .Net development first.

To be honest, I hate two kilos books. Usually such a book contains not much information. But not this book.

It starts from design guidelines and 40-pages(!) length questionnaire, and covers in detail a lot of subjects, including CLR, interop, remoting, ASP, XML, Web Services, etc. performance. How to measure, how to test, how to tune.

If you have to know a lot of things about a lot of things concerned with .NET performance, this book is for you.

Format: Paperback
This book needs a more current edition and fast. Written in 2004, this book covers ASP.NET 1.1 and early ADO technology. Even some of its best advice is no applicable. They actually discourage collections in favor of arrays - something that is inconceivable in .NET 4 with LINQ and Entity Framework.

Even forgiving the outdated advice, this book was heavy on the hand waving and there were few concrete examples. It really assumes you already know most everything about the key technologies, so it leaves implementation up to your imagination.

An even better idea would be to create a series of books on specific technologies rather than trying to be a catch all for the entire .NET platform.

The only reason I didn't give it a single star, was because I managed to get it through a company library for free.

Format: Paperback
A great book that covers in detail any areas you need: CLR, strings management, collections, asp.net, ado.net, xml, SQL Server and much more. A practical handbook that should be on your desktop as a reference for you everyday programming.
