I learnt a great deal from this book about both EWS and (to an extent) underlying Exchange and MAPI technologies. The book is well written, has a nice level of humour (just enough to lighten the text) and is obviously written from a position of real and substantial knowledge. I will go on from this to look at the later EWS SDK with the belief that I have a much better understanding of the underlying technology which, I believe, will make the use of the SDK easier and more productive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book on Exchange Web Services 19 May 2008
By Brandon Wolslegel - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is not only powerful, but is a must have for anyone developing against Exchange Server either now or in the future. The explanations are both thorough as well as detailed and make it easy for those who have never written web services to get started. The examples are fantastic and complete and in no time at all I was able to get started. I would recommend this book to anyone, new programmers or experienced. Fantastic book!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Only Game in Town--A Must Have 30 Jun. 2009
By P. J. Neary - Published on
Format: Paperback
I've been using this book for over a year now to develop a production application with EWS. This is the only book out there on this topic that I am aware of, so you have little choice in the matter. Fortunately, the book is well-structured, well-written, and pretty comprehensive. And it is "straight from the horse's mouth," so to speak. The samples are very helpful. Per a previous reviewer's complaint, they are all console-mode apps just to simplify their build and use. If you want to make a web service, you'll have to adapt and extend. I was particularly grateful that for push notifications, the authors actually went to the trouble to write out an embedded HTTP listener instead of presuming you would be content to run under IIS.

Be aware that MS has a new, higher-level API in beta now, called the EWS Managed API. This newer API eliminates a lot of the drudge coding in the SOAP proxy API described in this book. I don't think there has been an update to this book for the new API, but I would hope Mr. Sterling et al are planning one, or even better, a new book on this topic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really helpful 20 May 2008
By jmk - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is a must for all developers that want to benefit from the new Exchange Web Services protocols. MSDN documentation is not that great, but the book explains the internals, data types and procedures, giving clear examples. You can't go wrong with it, especially when developing using .NET
5.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading for Exchange Web Services 19 April 2010
By Bruce S. Gruenbaum - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I committed myself to a project that makes use of the EWS API without fully realizing how complex this API is. I needed to get at Exchange from non-Microsoft platforms and found this extremely hard to do from the on-line documentation and the SDK, so I bought this book.

The book does a brilliant job of not only covering development from a Microsoft point of view, but also from the point of view of someone using Web Services on another platform. It provides detailed information about each part of the API and helps you get up and running with Visual Studio pretty quickly.

It you are going to do any serious work with the Exchange WebServices API, this book is a must-have.

Now here's hoping they come out with a 2010 update...
