I take it along on trips where I can put it in my pocket. It is perfect for shopping trips with my wife. It gives me something to read while waiting outside the dressing room.
So far I have bought and read this book from cover to cover every time a new version comes out. It is a great way to get a refresh on everything that is available in the core C# language.
I have pasted the table of contents below to give you an idea of how much this little book covers.
A First C# Program Syntax Type Basics Numeric Types Boolean Type and Operators Strings and Characters Arrays Variables and Parameters Expressions and Operators Statements Namespaces Classes Inheritance The object Type Structs Access Modifiers Interfaces Enums Nested Types Generics Delegates Events Lambda Expressions Anonymous Methods try Statements and Exceptions Enumeration and Iterators Nullable Types Operator Overloading Extension Methods Anonymous Types LINQ Dynamic Binding Attributes Caller Info Attributes (C# 5.0) Asynchronous Functions (C# 5.0) Unsafe Code and Pointers Preprocessor Directives XML Documentation
I really like that this book has an index. A very nice index. I have purchased other pocket version books and even some short full size books lately that don't have one. It is very annoying to not have an index.
Another part of this book I love is the way the authors deliver the code samples using LINQPad. I own the full auto completion version of LINQPad and it rocks. I have been using it since its first release and it has become my favorite tool when working with databases.
If you are looking for an easy to use C# language reference, this is definitely the way to go!!!
