    Great book for those who want to learn C#

    I bought this book through Book-Byte OR. Delivery was quick and speedy (less than 1 week) and the package arrived in good condition. When I inquired with the seller for a tracking number, they got back to me in 24 hours with the number; very responsive!
    This is a great book for beginning C# programmers or those interested in learning the fundamentals. I also bought the VB version of this book last year which was also very thorough and well-organized.
