Personally, I have previous experience with C# (beginner/intermediate level) and I feel like the book could have been compressed down to 50 pages of solid material (maybe as the intro chapters for a more difficult book). Thing is, the author didn't write this book for me. Again, it's for first-timers.
If you're just starting out with game development and programming, or you feel intimidated by C#/XNA, this book will ease you in to game development and give you a good (if a bit thin) foundation to build on. That's why I'm giving it 5 stars. It achieves its intended goal...delivering a gentle introduction.
If you've got any experience with game development or programming, I'd look elsewhere.
I've been using Mr. Miles book since XNA 2.0, and have found it to be just the right combination of humor, ease of learning, and correct software development norms.
I just wish other books that say they're for the beginner really were. This book is truly for the beginner.
YOU GO ROB!! You're responsible for helping a bunch of kids learn how to write C# code using VS 2008.
