В своё время я спросил у Алексея Колесниченко (опытного разработчика, использующего стек Microsoft), какую книгу по C# и .Net лучше всего прочесть — чтобы было коротко, но максимально полезно?

Он сразу же ответил: «C# in a Nutshell». И я с ним соглашусь :-)

Хотя в названии книги указан только C#, на самом деле книга покрывает как сам язык (в данном издании — 4-й версии), так и базовые части .Net Framework.

Purely reference, and very complete. If you know how to code in C# and know object oriented programming, then you can come to this book to look at how specific functions work and choose the best one for your needs. If you're learning to program, this book will not help much. It's a reference not a guide.

Really good book. It covers the basics as well as very advanced topics. There are some places where it is hard to really understand the subject but the overall impression is still very good. Some programming experience is advisable before reading this book.

I'm hesitant to mark this as "read" because I still have a few chapters left; I'm one who reads reference books completely, and I still have six or seven chapters left. Nonetheless, everything I've read so far has met or exceeded everything I expect from an O'Reilly Nutshell book.

Velmi slušná kniha, která se netýká jen C#, ale i knihoven v .Net Frameworku.
Jedná se o kompilát - v dobrém slova smyslu - témat, která se objevují detailněji zpracována ve dvou samostatných knihách C# in Depth od Johna Skeeta a CLR via C# od J. Richtera.

Very good reference. I turn to it quite a bit at work as a fairly green C# programmer.

C# is way more practical than I thought. The .Net framework is a powerful bridge for all of the languages and I'm slowly learning to appreciate it through my master's thesis.
