By M. A. Covington on April 28, 2013
Format: Paperback
This book contains a lot of really useful information, but the author's non-mastery of English is obvious. Words like "the" are used in confusing ways (especially in program comments), and some things (such as the "volatile" keyword) go unexplained apparently because the author was having trouble putting things into words.

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.

Having read "Effective C#" prior to this, I was expecting quite a bit, and this book simply didn't deliver. The author writes small programs, then decompiles them, uselessly showing a smattering of IL, and explaining in broken English. Disappointing, but I still learned a few things.

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.

It's not the easiest book to read and follow, but it doesn't pretend to be either. The info has been helpful to me on the job in providing a grasp of specifics when I had a question, particularly in getting into what is happening in connection with IL (Intermediate Language), although it didn't give me the full amount of advanced info I wanted, it got very close and served it's purpose as an excellent reference tool.
