Technical books aren't cheap because they take a lot of time and effort to write - and the author has to put a lot of work into learning how to teach and his subject before he even starts. (That's why most "how to code" videos on YouTube are such crap: the author doesn't know his subject well, he does kn ow how to teach, and he has no idea how to make a video.)

But the Yellow Book is free (there is a download on the page I linked to) and some of the others can be borrowed from public libraries or bought second hand. For those a lot less ethical, many of them can be stolen from the internet as EPUB or PDF files as well.

If we go back to cars, you are trying to learn to drive a F1 race by stealing Ford Fiestas and stamping on the throttle. If you don't know how the clutch works or even that "it's the pedal on the left" your gear changes are going to be noisy and clumsy forever; if you don't know which side the petrol filler cap is you're going to have fun at the fuel station; if you don't know that tires need a specific air pressure you're going to wear them out very quickly. And even if you guess all that eventually you still aren't going to beat Louis Hamilton!

With C# and the .NET framework, there is so much "stuff" that can make your life easier - if you use it right - that you won't even begin to guess it's in there! Linq, generics, interfaces, using blocks, try...finally, the Diagnostics class, overloading, databses, transactions, delegates, ... the list goes on a very, very long way.
The only way to find them is to learn them - and that means a book, or better a course, honestly.

Get the Yellow Book, and read it. It's a pretty good starting point.
