Format: Paperback
I have found this book to be a very disappointing C# reference. The scope of the book is very large, but it doesn't seem to give adequate coverage of much of anything. Time and again I have gone to this book looking for a specific piece of information only to be disappointed. Other sections of the book are very poorly written. For example, in the section on exception handling, they state correctly that exceptions shouldn't be used to break out of for or while loops, and then proceed with an example that does just that. I think the author's could have invested a little more time and effort in coming up with a better example of using exceptions. Instead of buying this book, you're much better off saving your money and just using the MSDN documentation pages.

I don't agree that the authors used too many words. Each topic is covered clearly and succinctly. The reason the book is large is that it covers a huge amount of information (look at the table of contents). It is easy to read because the style is that of a person explaining the important points rather than a rehash of a manual. It gives insight and perspective not just facts. Lastly, there is no need to read the book cover to cover. I started with appendix A and B, then read the first 3 chapters and then skipped to the ADO.NET and ASP.NET sections.

This is truly a useful book, and my primary reference in parallel with the MSDN documentation. That is, it does not merely parrot the C# documentation, but supplements it. It gives behind-the-scenes insights, as well as useful application examples and snippets. It's as good as a 1272 page book on this expansive subject can get.

I have only reached the 250 pages on this book, I would say this is by far the best C# book that I own. I do agree that the book is verbose. Most important thing is that the subject matter is covered extensively.
