The book is great, Richter provides a welth of information about .Net in general. I strongly recommend it to everyone, beginner and experienced developers. Reading this book will give you a quantum leap of understanding into the .Net framework.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

On the side that I found less than great is the fact that the book has been arround since .Net 1.x and has been revised twice. So for example in .Net 4 Tasks have taken over from "naked" treads yet the majority of the later chapters talk about and provide exmaples using the thread-pool. The book does cover Tasks though. The book feels like the additions to .Net are there as an after-thought.
The second point I have is that I personally would have liked to have seen more examples. Though I understand that it was a balancing act between the thickness of the book and the examples that Richter provides. In whole I do believe that Richter did achieve a good balance between book thickness and examples provided.

Another Jeffrey Richter Classic
I've been collecting and studying Jeffrey's technical books for ten years now. All of his books are chock full of little gems that you just don't find anywhere else.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
If you really want to know what happens when you code your .NET application in a certain manner, this book is where you'll find that out. It doesn't just tell you what IL code is generated, but the implications of your code on the performance and reliability of your application.
You'll want to read each chapter several times to ferret out all the insights tucked away in there. Especially pay attention to the chapters on multi-threading. Don't foray into that quicksand without reading those chapters first!
I've offered to loan this book out at work, but don't seem to get any takers. They think I'm a bit of a geek perhaps. Then again, they all wonder why I'm getting paid twice as much as they are. My not-so secret weapons are the books written by Jeffrey Richter, Charles Petzold, and others. If you want to be the best, arm yourself with the best information available.
Maybe I am a geek..
