Yeah, Herb Schildt has two C# books out that I've seen, and both are bad.
They both look like recycles of his Java books which were recycles of his
C++ books.  Very liitle effort was done to make these books .NET oriented.
A shame, Herb wrote some good C/C++ books in the old days.

And if it's anything like the other SAMS books I've had the misfortune to
read, full of errors!

Dunno, but it can't be anywhere near as bad as Linux Games Programming from
Prima-Tech or *anything* Herb Shildt has done...
