Master reading list for Quants, MFE (Financial Engineering) students

Does anyone know whether "Applied C# in Financial Markets" by Martin Worner is worth reading?

I couldn't find much info on the book, in terms of reviews and such - I suppose that's one indication.

As always it depends on what you are looking for...

I have bought this book one year ago.

The audience aimed by this book, is people with no previous knowlege of C#.
If you are already a guru, you may loose your time/money.

But if you have no previous knowledge of c# the book is well structured -a lot of coding are available on line which keeps the book short, around 160p-

I'm working on a way to move this list over to our wiki so people can edit/add books. That would improve the quantity and quality of our reading list significantly.
