Flow of the "story" of the book is excellent.
Reader has easy task to learn the relevant things in seamless and well-laid
way. Lots of opinions and insights are provided with good reasoning which is
important for a developer struggling with design and architecture decisions.
Author is realistic about the subject and therefore doesn't fall to write with marketing
The book covers the CLR in such detail that I haven't seen
for a long time. Therefore it's easy to admit that I learnt a lot while it
could be said I posses fairly advanced skills in .NET.
