If you care about understanding the code you're writing, you should care about language specifications. When code doesn't behave as you expect it to, the quick way of handling the situation is to experiment until it does what you want - but it's far better to consult a book to find out *why* the original code failed. What better reference could you possibly hope for than the language specification?
Unfortunately, specifications are typically difficult to read. Where tutorials can be vague and woolly, specifications are meant to handle every possible situation, or at least explicitly state which aspects of behaviour are unspecified. Furthermore, they rarely contain the motivation behind various decisions - and it's understanding that motivation which can help you to learn to work hand-in-hand with a language instead of fighting against it.
The C# Annotated Standard is a rare gem - a reliable standard which allows the authors to express reasons, pitfalls, anecdotes, errors, and other little nuggets of wisdom.
I can't wait for the C# 3 edition :)
Every C# programmer should have this on their shelf.
