I am pleased to announce that Essential C# 5.0 by Mark Michaelis, and, new for this edition, yours truly, is available for pre-order now. It will be in stores in early December.
As long-time readers of this blog know, I was one of the technical editors for Essential C# 4.0 and Essential C# 3.0. Mark was kind enough to ask me if I would like to take a larger role in the process of updating the text for the new edition, which I gladly agreed to. There is no easier way to get a byline in a book than to assist with an update to a well-written series that you already know inside-out! Many thanks to Mark, as well as to Joan and everyone else at Addison-Wesley who made this process so smooth; you are all a pleasure to work with. Special thanks also to my coworker, C# specification guru Mads Torgersen, who wrote a very nice foreword for us, and to my colleague Stephen Toub who thoroughly reviewed the chapters dealing with asynchrony.
Hey, glad to hear that the book you were working on when I visited you at Microsoft is done now! Congratulations!
Many congratulations. I wish this comes out very helpful for us.
I have a question - Do you have some sample pages from the book to show ? I want to preorde the book
but need to know how the book is written. Meaning are you using all that excellent analogies or this just has theory in it ?
