The typesetting (which is the publisher's job) is also sub-professional. Instead of floating figures, this book has "interrupting figures" -- when there's a figure, the text will break off, leaving half a page blank, and then the picture will be at the top of the next page. Annoyingly, there are sometimes "smart quotes" and often "fi" and "fl" ligatures in C# code. C# is not English and has a definite character set of its own which publishers need to stick to -- if you use smart quotes or ligatures, you're not writing valid C#!
The other thing lacking is what might be called "follow-through" in the author's explanations. "Why are you telling us all this?" For example, don't just show us the IL code for how StringBuilder works -- explain what it means for us and why we need to know about it.
In summary: I look forward to an improved second edition.
I'd say buy it if you come across a good deal, but go for "Effective C#" if you are looking to really understand and improve.
