c_sharp_5C# 5.0 in a Nutshell, by Joseph Albahari and Ben Albahari, is a comprehensive guide to everything you need to know about the C# programming language. It serves as a one-stop reference to learning the fundamentals of C#, understanding the underlying framework, and mastering the advanced capabilities of the C# programming language

For developers new to the .NET Framework that are looking to focus on development areas such as WCF services or ASP.NET web application development, you will need a supplement book to gain that foundation. This book focuses solely on the intricacies of .NET, the CLR, and C#.

Areas that are covered include threading, security, native and COM interoperability, reflection and dynamic programming, to name a few. That list barely scratches the surface of the vast array of topics that are covered across 1062 pages.

This book is a must-have reference for any developer looking to learn and master C# development.
