But, if you are like me, you will pick that basic knowledge on your own from the web and then you will probably buy this book :)
This book has just the right piece of advice for all the coders who can learn the basics on their own but at the same time need to make sure they are doing things right.
This book will give you that extra confidence and will take you to the next level.
A few years ago I worked where we did 90% Microsoft development, but for the past few years I've developed with nearly 100% Java. I recently had a project where I needed to do some C++/.NET work so I wanted a good reference.
Like I said, I found this book to be excellent. It covered everything I needed, and explained the information so it was easy to understand and apply to my project. However, I found it annoying that all of the .NET books I looked at (including this one) wanted to keep dropping down to examples of how the code was converted to CLR instructions. Although this is interesting (from a CS perspective) it tends to get in the way of me finding what I need to know to complete my project in two weeks!
I definitely recommend this book - but I would like to see some of the .NET/CLR authors look up and stop assuming that we need to know how the code converts to machine instructions (this from someone that has written a lot of assembly-code).
But my primary problem with this book is that it's hard to read, for two primary reasons: 1) the type face is too small for average people; and 2) more importantly, the pages on the right side of the book are lighter than the left . . . and the faintness of the right-side printing makes it very difficult to read this book.
The small type face, I'm sure, is meant to reduce the production (printing/binding) costs of the book. The lack of ink on the right-facing pages is just poor quality control. . . . I'm certain the small type face exists in all of the books; and I'm guessing the ink problem exists with many of the books on this print run.
Thus, I will say if you have normal eyesight, this book is particularly difficult to read. So watch out.
As an aside, I can still read 'VDB' on the shoulder of Lincoln on the U.S. one-cent piece. So this is not my problem.

Not very useful for me personally. It's best for experts, not mid-level or beginners.Published 1 month ago by Max L. Day
I really like this book. It goes into depth and is very well written. It's the kind of writing that a professional programmer looks for because it goes straight to the punch and... Read morePublished on May 4, 2009 by Amazon Customer
