Think Microsoft .NET will provide the “big .NET picture” to help both developers and IT decision-makers decide whether they should explore .NET further. It is not a how-to book and isn’t code-laden. The reader will take away a deep understanding of what .NET is and an understanding of the .NET Framework. This knowledge will provide an orientation and give them enough information to make a sound decision on whether or not they want to use .NET in their IT department or development future.
