If you are familiar with programming books you should make it well worth your while to get to know Jesse Liberty asap. He's an amazing writer that puts books out in warp speed time. Content is always good, writing is clear and concise and he is a joy to read. With 'Programming .NET 3.5', Mr. Liberty does it yet again. My only complaint with this book and a rare one that I make is that this book is TOO short. With only 14 chapters, this book needs more content, even with 450+ pages. Newer focus is on WPF, AJAX, Silverlight, LINQ, WCF and the like but some older content would be nice to have as well.
If you need to learn about .NET 3.5 you would be remiss not picking up this text to get up to speed and working right now. You get this book you will NOT be disappointed!!
