Hello Windows users,

In Association With

Microsoft .NET is an innovative software framework that promises to change software development as we know it. This book answers the question "What is Microsoft .NET and how do I profit from it?" Each chapter is written in a logical, pyramidal format, with simpler, high-level concepts introduced first, followed by a more detailed technical discussion, so readers can easily choose how deep they wish to go into each chapter.

This book is clearly intended as an overview of the .NET framework. One should realize that much of the .NET framework is still being developed by Microsoft, and could therefore change before the final release of .NET, although the author points out which sections are likely to change.
