|Recently I posted about a book I was reading where the author would just leave me behind on stuff (Reading To Learn Tech[^]).
But, this post is about an amazing book and author.
I am probably ADHD or something so I like to multitask -- when doing mundane tasks like shaving or showering.
However, I prefer not to listen to anything political -- and since almost everything is now political I decided to try listening to an audiobook of a technical book.
I wanted to learn WebAPI-related & .NET Core so I picked this book at random and it has been amazing so far:
Microservices in .NET, Second Edition 2nd Edition, by Christian Horsdal Gammelgaard (Manning publishers)[^]
Think WebAPI, MVC, .NET Core
Before you get your shorts all knotted up on Microservices, hold on, this book is really about building solutions.
It's more about WebAPI & .NET Core ASP.NET & MVC & real-world solutions.
Very Clear, Great Author
This author explains things so clearly, provides implementation & then provides explanation.
It's so good, that I can't believe it.
I was so shocked while listening to it that I was actually understanding what the author was talking about.
Explanations are so clear and the author really builds the story.
Now, that I've listened to about 1/3 of I will go back and read the book too (I'm an O'Reilly bookshelf member so it is all available to me).
Anyways, have you ever listened to a tech book? It's (can be) a lot better than you might expect.
