c# book similar to javascript : the good parts


Was wondering if there are books out there for C# that covers which part of C# language is good and which part of C# language to avoid ? Similar to what the book Javascript : The Good Parts covered for Javascript.

Closest thing that I've found are "Effective C#: 50 Specific Ways to Improve Your C#" and "More Effective C#: 50 Specific Ways to Improve Your C#"


From stackoverflow
  • I am not aware of any C# books that does exactly that, but the many good books available all provide useful advice on best practices. For book suggestions please see this question: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/477748/what-are-the-best-c-net-books/477751#477751

  • This is the closest you can get since C# is in fact pretty consistent language and contains no parts to be avoided. All of its features used wisely (and not overused) should in fact be used, as opposed to C++, for example, wherein even a most of its features should be used with great caution.

    The books you listed describe best practices and basically common sense.
