Good in general, but urgently needs an update

Comments about oreilly Professional C# 6 and .NET Core 1.0:

The book is great for anyone who wants to start learning .net. Even the .net core stuff wasn't bad (when it was still viable). The stuff in the book, however, needs to update to the new tooling and the new .net core, since it has changed a lot, ever since the book was released.

    Comments about oreilly Professional C# 6 and .NET Core 1.0:

    I bought this book because it was supposed to give information about .NET Core. The big number of pages made me think I would have a complete reference on .NET Core 1.0. The outcome is a huge disappointment, as 90% of the book is about .NET in general and C# (which I know already). There are only a few chapters that really are about .NET Core. Additionally, the title says "professional", but a third of the books is repeating the absolute basics of C#.
