Immediately useful


I went through several books before I finally found this one. None of them ever got me to write a review before. This book has everything you need to go in and get 99% of what you need done. This is not only a fantastic reference but teaches you as well. A great one time cover to cover read. An excellent life time reference. Any one on Windows XP or Windows Server 2003 needs this book.

Finally, a book with a real-world example!!!


I am a person who learns by example rather than theory. As a beginner, this book was perfect for just that. The "Classy Classified's" example walks you step by step through a real world application. I do realize that ASP.NET gets way more involved than this book, but this example includes every kind of database manipulation there is. Add/Delete/Modify/Search. It even has password validation. I had no idea what ASP.NET was before I picked this book up, and now I have developed a real world application in less than a week. I would definetly recommend this!

great book


I was fascinated by some parts of the book(the chapters on delegates, exceptions & GC are really good), but some of it left me saying "duh". Richter does state the obvious at times, but all-in-all this book has a lot of info that you just can't find elsewhere. I think that the complaint of some reviewers dealing with the "trivial" nature of some of the info is valid, but some of the info is essential for writing tight code(the boxing info. for instance). Richter always brings good common sense to the table, and has a gift for explaning things clearly. I've read other .NET authors who don't.
