Title: Programming Windows with C# (Core Reference)
Publisher: Microsoft Press
Authors: Charles Petzold
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
another excellent book

As with previous Petzold's Programming Windows books, this book tells you the nuts and bolts of windows programming, in C#. In details explained real well. I especially enjoy the little pieces of history as introduction in each chapter. Petzold even give you a brief math lesson when explaining Bezier curves. But this book does not give you a real-world-app, but the knowledge of details that make you build one. The appendix of math and string class will be helpful for anyone doing real programming.

Reference? Yes. Good? Yes!

I normally don't write reviews, but recently this book has been helping me out a lot so I thought I'd share.
As someone previously familiar with CSS, and fluent in a slew of other web based languages I needed a book that had all of the information I needed about CSS so I didn't have to troll the web everytime I ran into a problem. Well, this book is it. Eric Meyer is known for being the man at CSS and this book is well written and concise. I'd recommend it to anyone using CSS, fluent or not.

Celko's right -- it's the best T-SQL book out there

Joe Celko's foreword to this book is exactly right: it's the best book out on Transact-SQL, bar none. More than that, this is a great book in general. It stands head-and-shoulders above most of the computer books out these days in terms of character, depth, and substance.
Unlike many computer books these days, this book is not a bloated tribute to dead trees. Instead, Henderson keeps to the point, nary wasting a word. He is concise, humorous, informative, and deep -- all the things you'd want in the ideal technical book. I give this book my highest recommendation.
