Like most complex tasks, .NET programming is fraught with potential costly,
and time-consuming hazards. The millions of Microsoft developers worldwide
who create applications for the .NET platform can attest to that. Thankfully
there's now a book that shows you how to avoid such costly and time-consuming
mistakes. It's called .NET Gotchas.
The ultimate guide for efficient, pain-free coding, .NET Gotchas from O'Reilly
contains 75 common .NET programming pitfalls--and advice on how to work around
them. It will help you steer away from those mistakes that cause application
performance problems, or so taint code that it just doesn't work right.
The book is organized into nine chapters, each focusing on those features and
constructs of the .NET platform that consistently baffle developers. Within
each chapter are several "gotchas," with detailed examples, discussions, and
guidelines for avoiding them. No doubt about it, when applied, these concise
presentations of best practices will help you lead a more productive, stress-free
What's more, because code examples are written in both VB.NET and C#, .NET
Gotchas is of interest to more than 75 percent of the growing numbers of .NET

yearning for a better way, this book is most definitely for you.
