The book is written assuming no prior programming knowledge on the part of the readers. However, we make certain other assumptions that we shall explain now.

Many a times, on a clear night when we look up at the stars, we can’t help but wonder whether there is intelligent life out there – or are they just like us?

For we don’t believe that intellect is a quality that we are born with. In fact we are going to share a secret with you. It is the secret of success given to us by an old gypsy woman. This magic mantra has worked with many and we assume you would also use it in your life. In fact this is the only assumption we make in this book.

The secret is in persistence – nothing in the world can take place of persistence. Talent will not, nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not, unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not, the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. We hope you agree with the old gypsy apply the maxim while learning C#.
