This was the original
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/189...lance&n=283155.

I'm not sure whether Eric is intending to update it for .NET 2.0, but
everything here still applies.

It depends on what you want to learn and your level of programming, but the
following book has an overall coverage of C# and the .NET 2.0

As far as I'm concerned the following books which I have read part of
are great:
"Programming in the key of C# " by Charles Petzold
"Programming Windows with C#" by Charles Petzold
"C# Primer" by Stanley Lippman
"Applied Microsoft .NET Framework Programming" by Jeffrey Richter
"C# Programming Language" by Anders Hejlsberg, Scott Wiltamuth, Peter
Golde
Good journey with them!
