This book is a good for someone who is looking for an introduction to object orientated programming or wanting to learn C#. This book isn't too easy nor too hard to understand. That is because the material isn't dumbed down, and that the material is explained well in it's context. This is a lot better learning material than what would be assigned in school, but that isn't saying much I guess. In short, if you want to learn Object Orientated Programming with C# this is the book for you.

I would like to recommend this book to any one who wants to learn the basics about C# language. If you are new to programming and wants to start learning C# then this is the book for you. The authors have written the book in a nice style so that it is appealing to novice. The book starts off with the basics showing with how to create a hello world program. This is done using Visual Studio Project and introducing how to use it to create a project, compile and run the project to see the output. Later the authors start with the basics and covers various C# language features like Array, Collections, Interfaces, Generics, Delegates. All these are explained using the C# and basic .NET classes using simple, understandable stand alone examples. The authors also introduces advanced topics like WPF, event programming, LINQ features etc. - though these are not covered in very depth detail - just an introduction to get your feet wet a little bit. In summary this is a book intended for novices. Intermediate and advanced programmers will find this book a bit boring. PROS : Good Style, Examples, Quiz at the end of each chapter CONS : Bit boring for advanced programmers
