Over the years, we’ve been technical reviewers of dozens of books. Occasionally, we like to give a thumbs up to the most interesting ones we see, because we feel they deserve the attention.
The book “C# in Depth” by Jon Skeet is definitely among this group. When we saw the first draft version it was, from the perspective of a technical reviewer, disappointing as there was so little to comment on: the book already looked very complete at an early stage. We’ll go one step further: this book currently is the de facto standard for books covering the essence of C# (such as generics, nullable types. lambda expressions, extension methods, LINQ, DLR, and code contracts). It’s the best one in it’s kind, and we feel that every C# developer should have a copy at home.
