New C# 4.0 How-To Review

Of course I  think you should go get my book, but so do other people. 🙂 Here’s a recent, good review of the book: C# 4.0 How-To by Ben Watson.

Some excerpts:

There were a couple things about this book that really compelled me.  The format (this is a first How-To book by Sams for me so I assume it goes across the board) was very much like a focused blog.  It was broken up into small posts about each topic.  The other thing that compelled me was the amount of code samples.

That is definitely the style I was going for and I don’t know if anyone else has picked up on that yet.

Instead, this is a book that you set on your desk and put post-its and dog ears for key sections that you use and use and use before you put the pattern to memory.

I myself use the book in that manner whenever I need a refresh on how to accomplish something.

Go get it from Amazon or B&N or other great bookstores everywhere!
