I like the C# Yellow Book. It is a free ebook available at the link below.

I'm still reading Microsoft Visual C# 2010 Step by Step. It comes with the full book, an eBook version, and code samples to help along.

In my opinion a 'good book' is really determinant on what your tastes are. Pretty much all beginners textbooks cover the same stuff, but in a different manner and in a slightly different style. The best thing you could do is take a peek in a couple and see which one you like the look of. Remember at the end of the day YOU are the one who will be reading the book and your tastes may be different to ours.

I have read most of the C# Yellow Book and it helped me learn a few things. My favorite book currently, which I haven't finished yet, is the C# 4.0 in a Nutshell: The Definitive Reference. This book is useful if you are a beginner to C#, but I would recommend having some prior programming knowledge before tackling the book.
