I'm going to extend the topic question with:

Where's the best/preferred online reference documentation for the C# language, .NET libraries etc?

Please note that I am quite familiar with MSDN.

As for the original question, can't help you there - I learnt the .NET tongues from a course and a scattershot of web articles (and MSDN, sure, but the place still kinda shits me). I wish I had a good tutorial to point people to for each language I use, though.

Charles Petzold has a free C# book availabe called net zero or something that can help you learn C# but I wouldn't call it the easiest to work through.

It's called ".NET Book Zero" and it's intended for people already experienced programming in C and C++. It's not a good source for someone without experience in those or similar languages.

He could just give it a try.

The book starts very basic IMHO. He (probably) won't understand everything at once no matter what book he reads.

i need it for game programming.
I don't think there is a universal "easiest" way that is "easiest" for everybody. We're all different and we all learn in different ways. You've already got plenty of possible answers, but I would just point out that you shouldn't expect to pick up C# in a couple of hours and start coding the next WoW over the weekend...

So what are your expectations here? What sort of games do you expect to be programming, and how quickly do you want to start coding them?

You will want to write as much code as you can. It's too easy to get stuck reading and never actually practicing what you learn. When picking up a new language it is critical that you become very familiar with how things are done, or you'll forget it all overnight.
