I've been developing for Windows 8 since the start of the beta and have found information on the internet extremely sparse and fragmented. Windows 8 Apps with XAML and C# Unleashed is the first comprehensive overview of the whole WinRT application process that I've found. The book details just about everything you need to know in order to create and submit a rich application to the Windows store. There is a wealth of information here that is hard if not impossible to find just through searching the internet

I had a culture shock when a Windows 8 tablet was presented to me for a new application; I needed a book to get me up to speed on what was new in Win 8 using XAML. This book is excellent and did the job!
Using colour images of the screens and code, it was very easy to grasp the effects of various settings. In particular how to get tiles up and how to get on to the charms panel (which brought me up to speed on what it could be used for).
Thoroughly recommend this book.
