"The book is suitable for anyone who wants a quick introduction to .Net. ..it doesn't treat you like an idiot. If you are looking for an overview that doesn't take a couple of months to read then I can recommend this particular introduction to .Net. As the title suggests, it really is just the essentials." - Mike James, Computer Shopper, December

The book is very good at giving information on the new framework. The problem is that I, and I am willing to bet many other readers, were looking for an authorative view of what .NET means and can do, rather than how it does it. It's as if I wanted to find out about the new class of car and what its features are and what it can do. Instead I am handed a concise mechanics manual that tries to explain the highlights of how things work under the hood.
I learned a lot, but I think I took away more from this book because I read some other materials first. Had I simply dived into this book, I would have been lost. This is not an "introdutory" book for most of us. For coders and developers, yes this will be helpful and essential - for them this is a very powerful book. For the "rest" of us - it's very informative if you are willing to wade through the details. Find something specific about .net you want to learn about, read up on that and THEN come to this book and get the details in order to build a full understanding of the technology.
Overall, I found the book well written. The coverage of topics is actually fairly decent. The authors have done a good job of focusing on the essential aspects of .NET. If you're looking for a book that gives gives an overview of the heart of .NET, this is a good book. If you're looking for an exhaustive reference, than you'll probably want something else.
