Someone once said that the beginning is a place to start; well, this is the beginning. Chapter 1 introduces you to LINQ — it clears up any questions you might have about what LINQ is and what it can do. Most importantly, it introduces you to a considerably larger view of LINQ than you might have at the outset. Chapter 2 takes what you discover in Chapter 1 and shows you how to apply it in the form of practical LINQ queries.
Chapter 3 is special — it tells you about the unique features in .NET Framework that make LINQ a workable solution. You'll probably find yourself referring to this chapter as you read the rest of the book.
Chapters 4 and 5 provide exclusive information for Visual Basic.NET and Visual Studio 2005 developers. It seems as if these two groups get left out of most books, but you'll find them here.
