General overview, but not written carefully Sept. 2 2007
By Snapfisher - Published on
Format: Paperback
A huge tome, that contains lots of info...however, it was written so sloppily, that you need to spend a gret deal of time interpreting what is on the written page. There are numerous code examples, but a number of them could never have been compiled due to typos in the code listings. The text refers to code listings that demonstrate functions other than what was described in the text. In one chapter, even the page/code listing formatting was incorrect. In general, if they would have bothered to proofread the book, it could have been 3 stars. As it is now, it just misses the mark. It is good for a general overview, and if one bothered to read and then reinterpret all of the code samples, it does contain useful information.

The Complete Book ! Oct. 15 2007
By Shanmuga Sundaram D - Published on
Format: Paperback
I seriously don't agree with the previous reviewer's. The title says it all, it is for "Professional". Not for a kid, who finds out grammatical errors in a book. If you are a Pro developer, you will get the point across and do your work what you need to do. Not crib about the minor faults. This book is a serious book for serious people. The Complete book, I would say. I use it on a daily basis and is a GREAT reference for my work !! Kudos Authors !! Great work done !

Excellent book to Start with Nov. 7 2007
By Adaptive - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Since I have some experience with VB .net
I thought at the begging, that when I want to move to c#,
I'll buy a small volume book and go thru the language.
Appeared that was the hard way for me, those instance/accelerated books
Are as their name suggested and it wasn't helpful for me.

After that I decided to buy this book and to invest time in reading it.
And to tell the truth -it filled my expectations.

The book is good not too complicated , gives you the right direction and
Covers what you really need to know.
It's also contains the latest information and this edition has improvements
In some chapters like: threading ,collection, networking,...and more.

It contains a lot of staff and I think it's great ,because you can
Approach later to subject and start learning it when you have the time.

I highly recommend this book for new and experienced programmers.
Don't be intimidated by it's large size (around 1800 pages), for me it's worth every penny.

One thing is the paper back , it would be more convincement if this was
A hard cover due to it's high volume.
Hope you Enjoy it as I.

Worst-ever Tech Book Sept. 9 2008
By ROI - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In 25 years as a software professional, the author of several books, and reader of hundreds, this is the worst book I have ever encountered. It is very close to unintelligible.
