    Hi Nakov. I am a computer science major and a software developer in the USA. I recently had to learn C#. I looked in Amazon.com for a good book to no avail. In my search I came across a link to your C# book and I downloaded it. It was exactly what I was looking for. A university-level textbook for C#. Perfection.

    I am now looking for a .Net book. I know the one you wrote is in Bulgarian language only, but I wanted to ask you if you know of any .Net book(s) that has a similar contents, format and flow as found in your book.

    I would really appreciate a response. Thanks.

      Same here, man. The book is really good. I watched all the videos, all presentations, all content of the book, and made all the exercises.

  7. Dan says:

    Please can you put some of your books in English. I read the c# programming book, it was very interesting. I know you mentioned something about translating the Java book, but I want a lot to read it. I’m not a native English speaker, but I know English quite well

    Interesting suggestions – I was fascinated by the analysis – Does someone know if my company might be able to obtain a sample OPM SF 86 form to fill out ?

  9. Hans Zijlstra says:

    With great pleasure, I am reading the book “Introduction to Programming with C# (in English)”. I notice that there are some errors in the English spelling and grammar. Since I enjoy the book that much, I would like to express my gratitude by offering my help and suggest corrections for one or more chapters. Should this be appreciated, just let it know, and I prepare and send a PDF file of a commented chapter from your excellent book. Kind regards, Hans.

    Hi, fantastic book on c#. Love it so much I’m trying to get the hard copy sent to me via faber-bg.com, I’ve paid them via PayPal but getting no responses ? The email on their webpage faber@faber-bg.com bounces back as a spoofed email address ? Hope I’m not being scammed here? I live in Austalia. Thanks
