A Great Read


This is the way I like to read history. I seek out books that span the ages, and this is definitely one of those. I've read so much history over the span of my life that I begin to look for texts that hit the highlights and add detail. The Code Book does just that. It is an exciting book to read even if you know how the battle of Midway was won or that Mary Queen of Scots was beheaded. I highly recomend this book to those who know their history, but enjoy a good yarn!

Solid textbook on C#


I've read some of Jesse's other books on C++, and found his writing style very approachable. While C# certainly has less of C++'s notorious complexity, it's a new language with a huge amount of extensions and API's (ASP.NET, ADO.NET, WebForms etc.) The book covers all of them in the same approachable style, and gives the reader a good survey of the dot-Net platform beyond the language.
If Microsoft follows through on their standardization plans, I think C# is going to be a very important language for both Windows and non-Windows coders. O'Reilly's take on it will definitely help developers interested in making it part of their toolbox.
