Recommended Readings

In order to help the aspirant software engineers in C# / .NET Framework area, and not only, I have compiled a list with the books that I have found relevant, without claiming to be complete or the single source of truth.
The list will be maintained and I’ll provide a review of each book as soon as I’ll have it.
For prioritization, I have used the MoSCoW method that you can read more about here.
