Format: Paperback
The trend of putting help and documentation online is not a bad idea per se, it's certainly cheaper for development houses than printing expensive paper manuals. But, although the capability for the 'paperless' office is here, the office itself isn't. This is because printed material is still the most versatile way for people to use and handle.
Online helps and references are sometimes like mazes, in that you chase a topic in a big circle until you get back to the beginning. They are great for overview and organization, lousy for hunting specifics. In addition, unless you have a laptop, you can't curl up in bed and read.
While it's true that everything in the printed reference is already in online help I've always found it convenient to also acquire the printed documentation. It's easier to park a specific page open and refer to it than to hop from one screen to another. Snippets of example code serve to illustrate the practical implementations of various C# elements.

Useful reference guide, but not for beginners Feb. 9 2005
By David L. Quan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you are looking for a book that nicely summarizes the C# language into a (non-MSDN) text, then this does a good job. It is well organized and keywords, functions, statements, etc are easy to find and cross-reference. The sample code is relatively useful, but sometimes challenging to figure out. I'd therefore recommend this book for intermediate-to-experienced C# developers.

Perfect Reference July 15 2007
By Leicester Dedlock - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I think that a lot of the criticism that this book receives is due to the fact that people do not pay attention to the title. This is a language reference, not a tutorial. As a reference, it's wonderful. Due to it's dictionary-like structure, you'll be greatly disappointed if you expect to learn C# from scratch from this book.

The entries are both clear and informative. The nice thing about this book is that it doesn't get carried away with exposition. It tells you exactly what you need to know and nothing more. Also, the examples are generally short, but they are clear and do a good job at illustrating the concepts. As a reference, which is all that this book is, I could not ask for more.

More trash from Microsoft Oct. 30 2006
By J. McManus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Save your money, another worthless book from Microsoft Press. You would think a company like Microsoft, with more than $50 billion in cash reserves, would spend a little money on decent documentation for their products. Their online documentation is marginal, and their textbooks are worse. Again save your money!
