Could someone define "bloated" .... my idea was a book which you could
browse through for learning and not use for "working" ... After all working
with C# is a topic for "Advanced Programming ...."

So let's concentrate on the new & easy stuff...

Yes that makes sense , this book aims at teaching a programmer from the
C++/Java arena .... (or a hardworking hacker from any language)
