The best C# language book there is by far. Intermediate level though. You definitely want to be very familiar with the language before starting it.

What sort of knowledge does it provide?

 

 

 

It goes over all the major features introduced from C#2 to C#5 and explains how things are done at the language level and behind the scenes. I'd say that after reading it I know more of the implications of coding something a particular way. Also there's some stuff that was fairly new to me such as expression trees and the await async stuff introduced in c#5

Less about how to be creative, more about how to create a sustainable work culture that allows creativity to flourish (and how to protect it). Explained through a portrayal of Pixar's (and to a certain extent: Disney Animation's) history.

Anyway, great story and characters. Still waiting for the movie :)

Some things are better not messed with ;)

Still in my list of books, which for a sci-fi junkie is a sin… but my OCD prevents me to read new books until I clear the pile I have unread.

The makers of MTG write an ocean of text, providing insights on design and development of MTG cards. Lots of cool stories. I'm leaving mapping indefintely and jumping in a different form of design and creative process: card creation and storytelling.
