It is not required that you have worked with C# before but being familiar to the fundamentals in any of the .NET programming languages will help you on the way.
If you are just now starting to learn C#, this can be a great way for you to learn about different techniques, best practices, patterns and how to think in certain scenarios. But if you have worked with C# development for many years, this book can give you a refreshing view on how to always improve and challenge yourself into becoming a better software engineer.
