This updated version covers Microsoft's recently released C# 3.0, including sections on LINQ. This is a book for busy people who need a succinct reference to the C# language and can be used both to learn the concepts and as a daily reference. For example, you could consult this book to learn how events work, but then also consult the book to brush up on how to write the standard event pattern. If a programmer has two days before a job interview to understand C# 3.0, then this book is an ideal choice.
