5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book, 31 Aug. 2012
This review is from: Microsoft® XNA® Game Studio 4.0: Learn Programming Now!: How to program for Windows Phone 7, Xbox 360, Zune devices, and more (Kindle Edition)
If you're looking to learn XNA and C# then this book is a perfect 5 stars. I recommend it to everyone I know who wants to make a game. It's well written, amusing, thorough, and right from the get go you're making actual, real games.

Many books, you'll end up writing 10 pages of code, told to 'ignore this section for now', and you end up with something that works, but you have no idea why and no satisfaction of learning.
With this book, right from the beginning you'll be making simple but complete humorous games, even if it's something as simple as changing your screen colour, it's presented to you as a game so it's immediately very easy to visualise other things you could do.

The only thing you have to be aware of, is that if you already know C# well, you may find this book a little slow as it covers many aspects of C# that you probably know like the back of your hand while it teaches you about XNA. However it's well structured and you can quickly skip to the parts of the book you need, especially as a reference for later on.
