I've looked around the forums and did not find a lot of book reviews, so I figure I'll ask.
Generally speaking, what are some good programming books? Any specific authors or series that you would recommend?
Now to be more detailed, I know C++ and Java, and am familiar with VB 6.0. I was going to get into .NET I have not worked with it yet and know very little about it. What would be a good book to start with for .NET?
