Required Reading

I've been a big fan of Chris Sells since I discovered his website while conducting background research for a telephony project. His website is loaded with well-written and useful information for developers of all levels; this book is no different.
Crammed with practical examples, this book manages to avoid what I consider the cardinal sins of most programming books: not knowing the target audience, and not knowing how thin to spread the material. Neither is an issue with this book: there is introductory, intermediate and advanced material covered throughout, none of which is at the expense of any other level; there is little extraneous information and lots of on-target information on what seems like every topic a .NET rich-client developer will face.
If you are at all interested in rich-client development, be it UI, controls, components, or soup-to-nuts WinForms development, this book is for you. Where Petzold provides an excellent overview of the basic WinForms objects and namespaces, Sells fills in the gaps in Petzold and expands upon that base to cover issues faced every day by real-world developers. Buy this book; I don't think you'll be disappointed.

No a very good book.

This book was a real disappointment. I wanted something with the ins and outs, the pitfalls and must do's. This was an overview of features in MS SBS 2K. No thanks. I'll read that on the web. This book goes back!

Good to read as a second book

It is a very good book if you know the basics of C++ programming. This book helps you understand a lot of difficult concepts. I would refer this book to people who know what C++ is and who would like to know more about it.

Title: High-Speed Digital System Design: A Handbook of Interconnect Theory and Design Practices

Check out - a great Interconnect book is finally here

This book is the most comprehensive book I have seen in the area of system bus design. It focuses largely on signal integrity issues that must be solved in modern high speed designs. It includes much practical information that can be directly applied to design, as well as a sufficient amount of theory so that the the reader can understand the fundamental issues assosiated with high speed signal propagation. It also covers topics not included inother texts, such as high speed measuremet techniques, design methodology and EMI. It is highly understandable and well organized.
