Best C# books with the most practical - not theoretical - examples and/or real-world sample code?

Last Modified: 2016-10-11

I am enthusiastically studying Visual C# Programming. I am looking to find the best C# books with a specific focus. I am focusing on the most practical, real-world examples that don't emphasize a lot of theory. So far in my book search, I have found .NET 4.0 Generics by Mukherjee and published by Packt. I consider this particular book to be an example of the type of book that I am looking to find more of. For those who already have a programming library of about a dozen books on C#, myself included, this one still stands out because of the book's emphasis. Any others out there that are similar to this one?

Thank you!
