I’ve just received my copy of the Third Edition of “The C# Programming Language” (CSPL3), by Anders Hejlsberg, Mads Torgersen, Scott Wiltamuth y Peter Golde, which I enthusiastically do recommend to anybody who happens to program in C#. Although the book has the succint, terse style common to all reference manuals of programming languages, this new edition embodies full information on the features added to C# in the 3.0 version, and also comes “adorned” with annotations on the different language elements written by such distinguished members of the Microsoft development community as Don Box, Eric Lippert or Bill Wagner. A “detail” I like a lot about this edition is that it is really an integrated reference of the full current C# language: along the document, the features appeared in C# 1.0, 1.1, C# 2.0 and C# 3.0 are intertwined. In the previous edition of the book, the description of the (then new) C# 2.0 features where appended sequentially at the end of the original C# specification.
An additional observation: seems like the amazon.com product description page is wrong (or they just sent me the wrong product?): it indicates a paperback cover, but what I’ve received is hardcover. That after all the discussion we had about this last week!
