Advance Praise for Head First C#

“I’ve never read a computer book cover to cover, but this one held my interest from the first page to the last. If you want to learn C# in depth and have fun doing it, this is THE book for you.”

Andy Parker, fledgling C# programmer

“Head First C# is a great book for hobbyist programmers. It provides examples and guidance on a majority of the things [those] programmers are likely to encounter writing applications in C#.”

Peter Ritchie, Microsoft MVP (2006-2007), Visual Developer, C#

“With Head First C#, Andrew and Jenny have presented an excellent tutorial on learning C#. It is very approachable while covering a great amount of detail in a unique style. If you’ve been turned off by more conventional books on C#, you’ll love this one.”

Jay Hilyard, Software Developer, co-author of C# 3.0 Cookbook

“Head First C# is perfect blend of unique and interesting ways covering most of the concepts of programming. Fun excercises, bullet points, and even comic strips are some of the catchy and awesome works that this book has. The game-based labs are something that you really don’t want to miss. [This book is] a great work... the novice as [well as the] well-experienced will love this book. GREAT JOB!”

Aayam Singh, .NET professional

“Head First C# is a highly enjoyable tutorial, full of memorable examples and entertaining exercises. Its lively style is sure to captivate readers—from the humorously annotated examples, to the Fireside Chats, where the abstract class and interface butt heads in a heated argument! For anyone new to programming, there’s no better way to dive in.”

Joseph Albahari, C# Design Architect at Egton Medical Information Systems, the UK’s largest primary healthcare software supplier, co-author of C# 3.0 in a Nutshell

“[Head First C#] was an easy book to read and understand. I will recommend this book to any developer wanting to jump into the C# waters. I will recommend it to the advanced developer that wants to understand better what is happening with their code. [I will recommend it to developers who] want to find a better way to explain how C# works to their less-seasoned developer friends.”

Giuseppe Turitto, C# and ASP.NET developer for Cornwall Consulting Group

“Andrew and Jenny have crafted another stimulating Head First learning experience. Grab a pencil, a computer, and enjoy the ride as you engage your left brain, right brain, and funny bone.”

Bill Mietelski, Software Engineer

“Going through this Head First C# book was a great experience. I have not come across a book series which actually teaches you so well...This is a book I would definitely recommend to people wanting to learn C#”
