Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Efficient, but tough going for a beginner


Every topic is clearly and simply explained in the minimum number of words - no waffle. This is the best book I've seen for getting started in C#. In fact it's the best technical book I have ever read. Some people have requested more depth - that would make it too heavyweight for people starting out in C#.

This book deserves 5 stars and more


This is the single best book I've read on C# and may be the best introductory book on programming in an object oriented language I've ever read.
There are some surprising reviews below, I suspect they were written by people with an agenda that had nothing to do with this book, because Programming C# is clear and well written, with excellent examples. Liberty goes way beyond the standard documentation to explain all the fundamentals of hte language, which is why this book continues to be one of the best sellers in the field.
The first part of the book is a primer on the language, and it is clear, and understandable and to the point. The second part is a quick review of how to use C# to create .NET applications, and the third part shows advanced topics in C#.
In addition to having written an excellent book, Liberty supports his book on his web site, where he provides all the source code and a support discussion group, where he personally answers readers' questions.
All in all, this is certainly the best C# book I've ever read and may be one of the best programming books I've ever read.

Chapter 3 alone would be worth the cost!


The must have Perl resource. It was written by the the creator of Perl for goodness sake! Offers thorough reference to Perl's rich set of text manipulation features. Not a tutorial but more of a intermediate/expert reference manual. Get Learning Perl(Camel Book) and this book. You will be a perl hacker in no time flat!

Good book


This is a pretty decent book with plenty of advanced topics. Other than the fact that not all the advanced topics were covered I'm pretty happy with this edition.
