    if you are interested in the C# syntax and Windows Form programming, the book "MICROSOFT VISUAL C#.NET" by
    Mickey Willams(ISBN 0-7356-1290-0) is one of the great ones

    Have fun

    Inside C# ( Tom Archer, MS Press ) is quite ok.

    If you need a manual to look up windows programming with C#, there is a Petzold for C#, too:

    Programming Microsoft Windows with C# ( Charles Petzold, MS Press )

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    Before thowing a bunch of book titles out there, first tell us what your programming background is. Have you done any object oriented programming before?

    in response to troll_king:

    I"m a have studied c,c++, java, html, and COBOL. I know the c languages pretty good, all the programs I have writen though have been for dos. So that covers my experience, I've been using c for 2 years, and c++ for a little over a year.

    The Charles Petzold book is good because it deals with the .net Base Class Library. The BCL is reuseable in any of the .net languages. This book doesn't cover the C# language itself very well though, so you need more than one book: Programming Microsoft Windows with C# ( Charles Petzold, MS Press )

    In order to learn the language and have a more comprehensive look at OOP and the C# language itself that starts from the beginning: C# Primer Plus by Klaus Michelsen followed by C# Primer A Practical Approach by Stanley B. Lippman.

    Lastly, in order to understand more about the framework itself, try, Applied Microsoft .net Framework Programming by Jef Richter.

    Those are good recommendations. Also, look at the Wrox Press titles on C# programming as well.
