Hello All,
Could anyone suggest me a good C# book for a beginner in .NET framework. I'm a java programmer but i need to learn c# as part of my job. Thanks in advance.

If you are experienced, I suggest Deitel's C# 2008 for Programmers.
Maybe you can give Accelerated C# 2008 a try also.
If you want to learn .NET and C#, MS Press is a good choice,e.g: Microsoft Visual C# .Net Step by Step.
A bit dry but worth of reading is Pro C# 2008 and the .NET 3.5 Platform, which is useful for OO programmers but not for newbies.
And last an easy one: Head First C# for real beginners (of programming, OO etc.).

I'm probably a little biased, but "Murach's C# 2008" is a great choice for people who already know how to program and want to get up to speed in a new language quickly. You can check out the reviews at JavaRanch or Amazon to see how others feel about the book.
Good luck!
Ben
