I just received this book yesterday (I pre-ordered it in August, 2005) and am halfway done with it as of today. I must say, that this book is a definite must for beginner hobbyists in the C# world. The book had a great layout, explains things clearly, is extremely easy to read and overall is very well put together. Given the hurried release of the book, and it being a first edition, there are a few grammatical & spelling errors, but those are easily submitted at Wrox¿s website for review. So far I have not found any errors in the code unlike other books I have read. I decided to get this book because I regularly visit Coding4Fun (msdn.microsoft.com/coding4fun) which for those of you not familiar, is a hobbyist programming site put together by a select few at Microsoft. I know that Dan Fernandez, one of the Coding4Fun authors, who I believe is still Lead Product Manager for Visual Studio Express helped Scott out while writing this book. I figured that this book, along with the Coding4Fun website, would be a great addition to my bookshelf. The main theme of the book ties very well into what hobbysist and beginner programmers are all about. Starting small and simple and working your way up. The author makes use of the starter kits included with Visual Studio Express very well. Keep up the good work!
