"A Very Nice Book" - by Bheeshm on 25-JUN-2014

A very nice book to understand how the things works under the hood. and i am a developer who has experience in C# language only , while CLR covers lot more languages , so it will be certainly difficult to understand it (CLR) without this book ( CLR via C#)

Thanks to Jeffrey.
