The book could be improved if the author made the following changes:
1) Do not print it on recycled pizza boxes. The paper quality is terrible and makes it hard to read because you cannot tell and H from an 11, etc.
2) Start each tip with a little set of icons that show which version of VS each tip applies to. I was frequently disappointed that at the end of a 2 page explanation the final sentence would say, "This feature is only available in C# for VS 2002." Obviously, for someone programming in VB.Net for VS 2005 it would have been really nice to know this BEFORE I read the 2 pages.
Other than that the book is great. It is a quick read and with a few short hours of easy reading you will be a much more productive programmer.
BTW, the "Hacks" book from O'Reilly contains about 80% of the tips that are in this book, nevertheless I am glad I bought both.
Most general-purpose .NET programming books only cover the bare essentials of what you need to know about Visual Studio .NET 2003/2005 in order to complete the programming task at hand.
This book picks up where those books leave off, and pays for itself within the first 5 minutes of reading due to resultant productivity gains within Visual Studio .NET 2003/2005.
For newcomers to Visual Studio .NET, this book is highly recommended. I even recommend it for experts of Visual Studio .NET -- even if you know most of the tips and tricks in this book, there will probably be some that you don't that will by themselves justify the cost of the book. Experts will also inevitably run into someone who is learning Visual Studio .NET, and this is an ideal book to have on hand to lend to such a person.
I found everything what I was searching for!
Now I can use VS much more efficently!
I give 4 stars(not 5) because of price - to high for me...
Besides, It's very good book - if you are going to be professional developer you should have it on your desk!
