As is stated on the front cover of this book, this is a "Reference," and not a tutorial, however, this book is an invaluable reference. For learning C#/.Net itself, I recommend either the Wrox Professional C# 2nd Edition, or the OOP with Microsoft Visual Basic .NET and Microsoft Visual C# .NET Step by Step.
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.
