I personally have found this book to be excellent. It's well paced and introduces the basic concepts of the C# language in a very methodical and structured way. With all these books, I think there has
to be some assumed level of pre-knowledge. I don't think anyone would pick up this book having not programmed before.
I have been programming for nearly 2 years, mainly Excel/Access VBA, so not even in a .NET environment, yet I have been able to grasp the concepts without too much difficulty. I'm not saying it's been plain sailing; there have been times where I haven't understood something, even after re-reading it several times, and I have resorted to looking it up on the web to get a different angle.
Some people are suited to this style of learning, others respond to a more practical approach.
