I highly recommend this book

I liked this book because it is the only one I've found that covers advanced material like security in .NET. This book is also great because it can be used by both beginners and advanced programmers, and that's very rare in most books written today.
I bought several books on C# including the O'Reilly and Wrox books, and decided to keep this Sybex book as it was the best of the bunch. This book is even better than the Microsoft Press books on C#!

Title: C# and the .NET Platform, Second Edition
Publisher: Apress
Authors: Andrew Troelsen
Rating: 2/5
Customer opinion - 2 stars out of 5

I'll give Microsoft there dues, they try. The entire book is on CD Rom for easy searching and comes with a DVD of Visual Studio Evaluation Edition. It provides a good overview of the C# & VB .net languages but doesn't go deep enough and has too many mistakes. I don't know how anyone could expect to pass a certification exam using this book alone. If you want to learn C# get Andrew Trolesen's C# and the .NET Platform.

Dell shows How to put Common Sense to Work

I think what has made Dell succesful is his simplicity and application of ideas that were thought to be too trivial once. How repeatable is this success story for other business ventures can not be guaranteed. But one thing is sure, if you think and work like Dell, there are a fairly good chances of tasting success.
