    Hi guys,

    wondering if anyone is working through any of the .net 4.0 books that seem to be appearing out there?

    Looking for advice on a book to start with having worked with .net for some years now. Looking towards the new features and those explained as opposed to existing stuff up to 3.5.

    Anyone working through any books they can recommend?

    Introducing .NET 4.0: with Visual Studio 2010(Apress)

    see details: http://www.apress.com/book/view/143022455X

    Who is this book for?

    The book is aimed at .NET 3.5 developers who will be trying to get to grips with .NET 4.0 and the associated supporting technologies, such as ASP.NET MVC, pLINQ, etc., which will be changing the way they need to think about creating applications.

    There are lot more on .NET 4.0 on various topics see the website link:

    If you're looking for a book that was checked on the final release candidate, not some early beta, I'd suggest starting with:

    Professional C# 4 and .NET 4

    Yes, there is a lot of carry over material that's been updated for .NET 4. But the authors also made a big effort to cut older topics that won't be used much and increase the amount of .NET 4 specific feature coverage. Hope this helps.
