I really enjoyed reading this book. It is a great starting point for developers looking for an introduction to the many different mapping options available from web development to Power Maps in Excel and much more.

Good only if you're a beginner 27 April 2014
By Jarred D. Capellman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Let me prefix this review with a question - are you an experienced Bing Map API developer on ASP.NET, Windows Phone, WPF or Windows Store? If so - skip this book.

I received the book Friday night and was excited to dive in Saturday night only to find out I just wasted my money on the book - outside of the last few pages on Excel's Power Map feature I was already equal to or more advanced just by doing ASP.NET, Windows Store and Windows Phone 8 apps for work.

If you answered no to the prefixed question - then this book will jumpstart you on ASP.NET, WPF, Windows Store and Windows Phone in a pretty decent fashion including reviewing Geospatial data briefly (if you want to dive in further I highly suggest getting Pro Spatial with SQL Server 2012 by Alastair Aitchison, he does a huge deep dive for beginner to advanced users). In addition the author reviews how to setup a WCF service (why not WebAPI as well I have to ask), Azure Hosting of both sites and databases, which for a beginner or someone who hadn't really worked on all of those platforms is a nice jumpstart.

In summary, I wish I could give two ratings. One for the beginner that this book seems targeted to, in which case I would probably give it a 4 or 5 and another rating for the intermediate/advanced user looking to fill in any gaps and continue advancing, in which case I would give it a 1.
