  • All of C#’s fundamentals
  • Advanced topics such as operator overloading, type constraints, covariance & contravariance, iterators, nullable types, operator lifting, lambda expressions & closures
  • LINQ, starting with sequences, lazy execution and standard query operators, and finishing with a complete reference to query expressions
  • Dynamic binding and C# 5.0’s new asynchronous functions
  • Unsafe code & pointers, custom attributes, preprocessor directives, and XML documentation

                I bought this e-book and put it in my tablet.

                Though this handy book contains just 200 pages,(many people might though "thin") it has almost all essential knowledge for developers who are using C#.

                If you are novice for C# or want to revisit C#, I highly recommend this book :)
