could have been a better book with some more concepts and on the spot codes rather than just refering to CD 95% of the times.
Mickey covers all aspects of C# programming, including:
* The C# language and the .Net framework itself
* An extremely comprehensive presentation of Windows Forms
* Introductory material on GDI
* Good beginning material on ADO.Net and XML
* Introductory material on ASP.Net and Web services
This book is very heay on thorough explanations of various classes, techniques, and the .Net framework itself, and very light on example programs, making it an excellent reference.
The only issue I have with this book is that it does not cover basic architectual issues in building an entire program. By this I mean it does not show how a programmer might write a distributed application, with code in components. If you want to know how best to architect an entire solution, this book is of little help. Also, Micky makes a number of well-meaning comparisons to C++, which are either wrong or are misleading, however, the comparisons are of no consequence to his excellent presentation on C# and .Net itself.
He covers alot of the ground that Richter does - strong name assemblies,reflection (a most brilliant presentation I might add),etc. I truly enjoy the way he handled Windows/Web forms.
It was not just the point and click stuff that you get in the
Step by Step series. Mickey took us to the nitty gritty of it.
This WILL definitely be my "go to" reference book on C# and the
.NET framework. I have read at least 5 other 'Advanced' C# books and this was by far the most enjoyable (honorable mention to Tom Archer and his "Inside C#" ). And finally, Mr. Williams has an endearing sense of humor --> Hey you gotta love someone who gives you baseball and overdraft applications ubiquitously.

Overall I think this book makes a good reference. In chapter 7, I like the point about being careful to invalidate the enumerator if the underlying data gets changed. Read morePublished on May 6 2004
I have read in the reviews of this book that it's geared towards the intermediate/advanced developer. I disagree! This book is orientated towards the beginner. Read morePublished on April 27 2004 by John M. Beckett

This book lost the ground of its course. Not good enough on C#, very little .Net framework, and gives only simple things about Windows programming and other key areas. Read morePublished on Nov. 16 2003
The first couple of chapters gave a decent introduction to C#, but later on the book strayed away to include things like ado.net, windows forms, etc. Read morePublished on Nov. 9 2003 by wangwei
Examples are poor and there is little information that you couldn't easily find on help. Help actually provides more info than this waste of time. Read morePublished on Nov. 6 2003 by JEFFREY ALAN REINHOLZ

This is one of the best Visual C#.NET books available in the market at this moment. It is a good mix and balance of tutorial and reference material, explained in a clear way. Read morePublished on Oct. 8 2002 by Adam Rivers
