Pro .NET Memory Management reviews summary – Q1 2019
It’s been about half a year since my book has been published and people started to read it. Some even already finished! I thought it would be nice to gather all the reviews I’ve seen so far. There are not so many still – I was able to find 13 reviews on various sites. Still, big thank you for those who write them !
I must admit, I am very, very pleased with those opinions! There are almost no negatives! The greatest satisfaction is given by statements that someone felt a better programmer after reading it. Or applied it in practice immediately. Some reviews are quite comprehensive, some are pretty short. To help you in skimming all them, I’ve highlighted the most interesting (and positive!) parts of them. Negative parts are also highlighted – luckily there is so few of them!
Obviously, general statements about the book being very well-written or structured are also very pleasing! Hearing “amazing” about your work is awesome!
One of the nicest things is to hear that this book is a “must read” for every .NET developer !
The same about hearing that it is “ one of the best books about .NET ” or the best book about this topic!
And even two of those reviews are written by friends of mine, I know them well enough to be sure they are writing sincerely. If they did not like something, they’d write it honestly!
So after more than two years of writing, this is a kind of reward for me to read all this!
The very first review was kind of problematic because of Amazon’s formatting issue. Not my fault, unfortunately. But luckily reviewer revised his review after correspondence with the Amazon (AFAIK).
So in summary – I am very pleased to hear that people like the approach taken by me in designing this book. I wanted it to be both very theoretical (a lot of deep-inside stuff and its theoretical basis) and very practical (presented Scenarios and Rules). And it seems it works!
