I am an IT manager who has studied BASIC, VB, C, and several 4GL's. I was looking for a grand tour of Microsoft's Dot Net toolset. This book is taking me through everything I need to know to get up and running on managed code and then into the specifics of web forms, windows forms, file and database access. Discussions of abstract concepts such as generics are clear and concise. This area is so rich in complexity, it takes a long time to get through all the chapters. I wish this were available as an ebook as with 1104 pages it is a lot to lug around.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
