Good book to start C# using Visual Studio 2008,

This review is from: Murach's C# 2008 (Paperback)
This book is an excellent resource for getting started with C# using Visual Studio 2008. Note that no one book can teach everything, nor is the book format for everyone (paired pages where the book tries to present text on the left page and illustrations on the right page), but the presentation works for me. In my opinion this book is a very good learning tool and is an excellent addition to the library of a self-taught programmer that knows no mentor because of the code samples which serves as reference as well. There are also numerous illustrations and screenshots. For a 700+ page book this book should get anyone started with C#. I also recommend books by Andrew Troelsen, the Wrox Pro C# (with 5 authors), and the Microsoft Press Step By Step series.
