The Internet Plan

Mary has written and published a book, "The Internet Plan", which is a workbook for guiding business owners and managers to develop a plan for their online presence that is aligned with their goals. 

I got to assist with the technical editing and I think it is a really useful guide for non-geeks to make sense of what they need and want to do on the internet.  Check it out!

(I promise I will write about things other than books)

C# in Depth, Second Edition

I am slowly reading (I have it on my tablet which I carry everywhere) Jon Skeet's "C# in Depth, Second Edition" from Manning Press and am oddly enough really enjoying it.  Besides clearly being a master of the subject, Jon has a style that makes what could be a really dry subject engaging, like a good mental puzzle or a good popular press treatment of physics.

He goes "In Depth" in to the ins and outs of the C# language and how it has evolved over the last 10 years and gives a very deep grounding into how lamdas and delegates, LINQ and much more work.

I am not sure if every C# developer needs to know the language at the level that it is presented here, but I do know that a candidate I interviewed last week would have gotten a yes vote from me if she had a strong grasp of just this sort of material.
