I picked this book up at a used book sale for a buck:
Mostly, I liked that the guy on the cover looked like the most prototypical basement-dwelling, D&D playing computer geek I had ever seen. Plus I wanted to learn C#. As it turns out, the "beginning" classifier on the cover made this book lose most of its usefulness to me. The book assumes no previous programming experience, which makes it too arduous of a task for anyone with some experience to work through.
