Dr. Dobbs Bookshelf reviews the Framework Design Guidelines in the current issues.    I appreciate the fact that Peter notes that the book is good for people learning the.NET Framework as well as those designing their own libraries.  While we did specifically target the book for folks building libraries, it has been my experience that LOTs of developers can find value in the book... Knowing the rules to the system help you understand the system. 

 

Oh, and Peter even if they are utopian views, I hope the book is in some small way life changing and I sure hope it settles some newsgroup disputes ;-)
