Item description for C# in Depth: What you need to master C# 2 and 3 by Jon Skeet...

C# in Depth is a completely new book designed to propel existing C# developers to a higher level of programming skill. One simple principle drives this book: explore a few things deeply rather than offer a shallow view of the whole C# landscape. If you often find yourself wanting just a little more at the end of a typical chapter, this is the book for you.

Expert author Jon Skeet dives into the C# language, plumbing new C# 2 and 3 features and probing the core C# language concepts that drive them. This unique book puts the new features into context of how C# has evolved without a lengthy rehearsal of the full C# language.

C# in Depth briefly examines the history of C# and the .NET framework and reviews a few often-misunderstood C# 1 concepts that are very important as the foundation for fully exploiting C# 2 and 3. Because the book addresses C# 1 with a light touch, existing C# developers don't need to pick through the book in order to find new material to enhance their skills.

This book focuses on the C# 2 and 3 versions of the language, but clearly explains where features are supported by changes in the runtime (CLR) or use new framework classes. Each feature gets a thorough explanation, along with a look on how you'd use it in real life applications.

C# in Depth is both a vehicle for learning C# 2 and 3 and a reference work. Although the coverage is in-depth, the text is always accessible: You'll explore pitfalls that can trip you up, but you'll skip over gnarly details best left to the language specification. The overall effect is that readers become not just proficient in C# 2 and 3, but comfortable that they truly understand the language.

Reviews - What do customers think about C# in Depth: What you need to master C# 2 and 3?

Interesting text  Sep 6, 2008
Still haven't gotten a chance to really use it yet, but it does appear well written, and in a tone meant for programmers like myself that need to know more about updates to the C# language.
 
Unique!  Jul 25, 2008
This book is unique, I know no other book that is based on the same concept

If you're familiar with C#1 or C#2 and want to learn more about the more recent releases, this book's made for you

The author knows exactly what he is talking about and explains it in a very clear way

Also if you think that C#1 is good enough and see no reason to upgrade, this book will definitely show you the really nice new features step by step
 
This is the one to get!  Jul 21, 2008

Ah! This is the C# book I was looking for. Very well done. At the risk of sounding nasty I will say this: I have read both books, and "C# in Depth" is far better than ""Effective C#" by Wagner.
 
New features of C#2 and C#3  Jul 18, 2008
This book has a very specific agenda: the features of the C# language introduced in versions 2 and 3 with minimal discussion of the .NET framework. As such, it concentrates on generics, delegates, nullable types, lambda expressions, extension methods and LINQ.

It has minimal discussion of syntax and features already available in version 1 and as such, this is not a book for learning C#: those who don't already know C# version 1 are better off with the numerous other books aimed at this reader.

But for those familiar with version 1 interested in the new features, it's excellent; the narrow focus allows as much depth as we're likely to want without going to the standard itself.

The author has a conversation style with numerous asides and anecdotes which I sometimes found distracting but it's not excessive as for example in the Head First series.

He often compares C# syntax and capability to Java and C++ which I found immensely useful.

All sections are explained clearly with economical but sufficient use of examples. Overall, it's well above average for a computer text.

 
How C# has improved in expressiveness with each new version  Jul 13, 2008
When thinking about what an "in depth" discussion of C# might include, one might have voted for "challenging" topics like asynchronous programming or remoting in C#. But "in depth" in this book means going back in time to discuss in detail how the expressiveness of C# has improved with each new version by making the compiler take on more and more of the "heavy lifting". This approach to teaching about select new features in C# is quite interesting and illuminating, I must say.
