Books for CLR coders pt2

Cesar asks what books are great for learning the CLR? In an earlier post I listed some of my fave CLR books, of that list its really down to what approach a programmer wants to take with the CLR as to which they buy (although I recommend that every CLR wonk buys them all). In Cesars case he wants to understand the CLR in depth, for this I recommend Essential .NET Volume 1, Appiled Microsoft .NET Framework Programming and Common Language Infrastructure Annotated Standard.

Thanks Joel, got that one on my other list :) I agree a great book !

I did'nt include that one for Cesar as he is working on Mono so a book on Rotor while useful in background won't really help him learn the CLR (its more an internals book).

Hey Andrew!

Thanks for the suggestions, I think I'll go for Don Box's one and the annotated standard.
