C# Programming Language Book Review

I just finished reading The C# Programming Language (3rd Edition).

For those interested in learning C# try Programming C# 3.0 instead.  The specification is about 650 pages and some parts describe the grammar of familiar subjects at great length without explaining how to use C#.  The best part about the book: the cool factor of having it sit on my desk.  Chicks dig nerds ;)

This was a good read now instead of earlier in my career so I could appreciate the annotations and lexicon.  The book pointed out things I didn't know C# could do, and don't see why I'd want to do, but would make good trivia (does this compile?).  Some things were interesting like the fact that the this keyword is a reference in structs.  Also I had never looked into the unsafe features of the C# language, making that chapter good reading.
