C# in Depth 3rd edition available for early access, plus a discount code…

Readers who follow me on Twitter or Google+ know this already, but…

The third edition of C# in Depth is now available for early access from its page on the Manning website. I’ve been given a special discount code which expires at midnight EST on February 17th, so be quick if you want to use it – it gives 50% off either version. The code is “csharpsk”.

It’s likely that we’ll have a separate (permanent) discount for readers who already own the second edition, but the details of that haven’t been decided yet.

Just to be clear, the third edition is largely the second edition plus the changes to cover C# 5 – I haven’t done as much rewriting as I did for the second edition, mostly because I was already pretty happy with the second edition :) Obviously the largest (by far) feature in C# 5 is async/await, which is covered in detail in the new chapter 15.

Just grabbed this, as an owner of the second edition. I trust this will be just what I need to know about async/await.

Thanks for all your work on Stack Overflow.

Perhaps a possibility to publish the new C#5 chapters as an addendum on the 2nd edition?

Like a small E-Book?

@Caspar: No, there's no plan to do that. It was an option we looked at at one point, but at the moment it's not in the plans.

As a concept, are there any new chapter ?

Purchased ebook and print from my mobile phone in 4am while twittering. Now my collection of your books (1,3) and CLR via C# (1,4) is complete.

Also your Tekpub Async videos are perfect.

This deal became available two days ago. You can purchase the eBook for $9.99 or the pBook for $19.99 by using the code skeet3eupgrade. This offer expires at midnight (US eastern time) on Monday February 25.

Hi Jon,

I bought the second edition of C# in Depth. Are you considering selling a delta edition that contain only the new stuff. This way I can pay a reasonable price and get most up to date information.

Best regards,

I had your book, CLR via C# and Expert C# 5.0 (new book but with some interesting information). My collection is about to complete :)
