    C# book recommendations

    anyone recommend (or better yet, warn against) any C# books? I'd consider myself a very competent programmer, and I've worked a bit in C# before, but as I'm moving jobs from C++ to C# I'd like a good authoritative language reference (no c# for the mentally challenged please )

    Is 'Programming C#' any good?

    BTW, I did a quick search of the forums and this returned no results (searching accu.org gave me a load of C++ hits), so I thought I'd ask here.

    If you program in C++, you need Boost. You should also know how to use the Standard Library (STL). Want to make games? After reading this, I don't like WxWidgets anymore. Want to add some scripting to your App?
