Nice Treament of a Tough Concept
In general, I really liked the book. Not clouded by programmer-speak. OOP concepts were presented in a logically, distinct and readable manner and geared to a beginner audience - old timers like me still learned a few new things.
Don't let the word "beginning" in the title deter one from buying this book even if you have previous C# coding background. I feel that the implementation of the OOP concepts using the Visual Studio IDE is better understood by those who have some background C#.
For true "beginners", the latter chapters dealing with the creation of the Data Access Layer and the simple creation of Windows and Web Applications may be a bit much. It is a simple step by step explanation of how you use OOP with Windows and the Web; it may be too much for the true C# novice, too simple for the experienced. On the other hand, it is needed to show how those OOP concepts become real. I leave it up the individual "novice" to make that call.
Overall, there is a lot of good material here on the OOP subject and its implementation using the Visual Studio product. Even an old war horse like me learned some new stuff. It was a quick read for me, but I would recommend this book for those who want a precise and distinct explanation of OOP and how it is implemented using C#.

Check out the Errata Before You Buy
Before you consider buying this book, I suggest going to the Apress website and reviewing the errata for this edition. Why would any publisher release something with so many errors it it? I cannot comment about the actual contents of the book because I never made it that far.
