For a start, you can get the information contained in this book on the Web anyway, so only buy the book if you want a hardcopy (that's why I purchased it). If you don't want a hardcopy there is a PDF that is available to download that does the same job (it actually has more in it).
The book covers the basic ideas behind PRISM- that is writing composite apps in WPF/Silverlight using the MVVM pattern.
It would be useful to those that are new to PRISM, MEF, Unity or MVVM.
This is actually one of the best books I've read for MVVM content- it even beats all of the currently available MVVM books out there (as of July 2011). Even if you don't intend to use PRISM it is still useful in providing some guidance on how to architect an enterprise WPF application- guidance that is seldom available.
If in doubt about this book read some of the reviews on Amazon.com- in my opinion they give a much better view than some of the other reviews on the UK site.
In summary the book is well written and provides useful architectural guidance- buy it if you want a hardcopy.
