Since technology is changing so quickly, survey books have much to offer in the way of imparting a great high level view of the entire .Net landscape while requiring the least amount of time on the part of the reader. Survey books also serve as a solid foundation on which to build deeper study.
This book leverages the wisdom of "many hands make light the work" by recruiting top notch domain experts for each topic. I hope more industry related technology books will follow this lead because utilizing lots of authors prevents the reader from picking up the limitations and biases that can (potentially) come from a smaller set of authors, and it also imposes less stress on a group of authors by not forcing overreach.
The book walks readers through the evolution of .Net technologies, which provides beneficial context. This information is also useful to those using legacy versions of .Net technologies.
My favorite part is the F# section, which is delightfully concise and accessible, yet doesn't skirt advanced topics like computation expressions, asynchronous workflows, and CPS (continuation passing style). The F# presentation is extremely important to all .Net programmers because many of the latest trends in C# and .Net are coming directly out of F# and functional programming (i.e. generics, LINQ, lambda functions, etc.). It is very pedagogical to see these concepts in a natively functional language like F#; they can then be leveraged from other technologies.
It's more academic rather than a practical guide which helps at day 2 day work.. No exhaustive code samples, exercises and nothing much that engages me from technical stand point..
Everything is touched on but briefly.. Instead, I should have bought a book which sheds light on one particular technology/framework and takes me deeper..
This book is kind of "Master of all jack of none.."
What to know history, versions, evolution and features of certain technology, read this book ..
