Although Essential .NET, Volume I: The Common Language Runtime has only 432 pages (published in 2002), it contains a lot of practical details and expert-level advice only Don Box can provide. This provides the very important reference and guidance for developers who need to make full use of the Microsoft .NET‘s powerful features.

As a founder of Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) version 1.1 and Microsoft’s architect, Don Box deeply discussed the essence of .Net Framework: Common Language Runtime (CLR for short), and revealed the internal working mode of CLR. While helping readers have a more complete understanding to CLR’s working mechanism, he guides them how to use the .NET Framework to build better applications.
