From the reviews:
"Database programming in Microsoft’s .Net approach is accomplished via ADO.Net. … So in this book we might expect to find a detailed description of ADO.Net with C# examples. The author delivers on the expectation, covering ADO.Net in two of the 11 chapters. … it can be used as a reference text. … absolute beginners will find an abundance of useful information. … most of the content will more than satisfy beginners." (Daniel Moth, The Computer Bulletin, November, 2002)
"Database Programming with C# by Carsten Thomsen, is for people who have already done database programming in Visual Basic or Java and also know the basics of C# programming. … The appendix, showing connectivity to SQL Server 2000 using XML, is particularly useful. The coverage of unusual topics such as message queues and hierarchical databases demonstrates Thomsen’s mastery over .NET, making this book a must read, particularly for database programmers with basic knowledge of C#." (Alokesh Bhattacharyya, Computer Today, July, 2002)
