Where does C# Programming Bootcamp rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It is easily one of the best beginner programming books that have been converted to the audiobook format.

Who was your favorite character and why?

There are no characters in this book. It is a C# Programming book. Well, I guess that technically the character is you, and in that case the character is quite well developed and easy to identify with. :P

What about Mike Hennessy’s performance did you like?

The narrator is easily the best feature of this audiobook. While the material is perfectly suited for beginning programmers like myself, the narration has a familiar quality that gives it a professorial tone, while making it feel like that professor is also your next door neighbor, who has generously decided to help guide you through your first steps into the world of C# computer programming.

Mike's tone is gentle but firm, and is very smooth. His cadence has a comforting familiarity, while also motivating you to pay attention and follow along. I found it very easy to follow along with his narration, as it wasn't too slow to lose focus, and not too fast to get lost. His annunciation is clear and crisp. There are no muffled sounds, no air pauses that cause confusion, and his pronunciations are right on target. Not once did I misunderstand anything that was being said.

What insight do you think you’ll apply from C# Programming Bootcamp?

The book has helped me take my first steps in C# programming. I'm hoping it will help me go on to bigger and better things.

Any additional comments?

I highly recommend this book for C# beginners. The step by step instructions are methodical and easy to follow, while the narration makes those instructions clear, concise, and more apt to stick with you. Excellent tutorial, with top notch narration. A+.
