Default Book Review - Definately a MUST buy

This book is a MUST buy. I said it before but now I would like to add a bit more as to why.

I have bought all C#/Database/Microsoft - related books from WROX but this book is just amazing. A lot of professional info and above all, the author offers updates constantly. Never before have I seen someone that updates the figures from his book because they are no longer valid, or the code samples because the underlying framework changes. This book can be the main source of learning , followed by a minimum amount of search in google.

With most of the other books out there its the other way around (even some of the wrox ones). You read a topic , its presented very shallow and you have to search google for hours/days. No blog to keep the book updated, nothing at all. Makes me wonder why I bought the book in the first place. I could just as well watch tutorials in YouTube or even better in Microsoft Virtual Academy.

Again this book is AMAZING, PROFESSIONAL, WELL STRUCTURED work! Your blog (https://csharp.christiannagel.com/) is a good effort as well. You seem to update it faster than we can read it. It complements (sometimes copies) the book just fine. Your book-related GIT code (https://github.com/ProfessionalCShar...ssionalCSharp6) is very active as well.

Wrox should let you write more books and replace some other writers-developers who write a book and abandon it on its fate.

I could go on but it is 40 degrees here in Greece and I can barely think:)

Score: 10/10 for me and for most professional .NET Developers
