About the Author
Aaron Reed has extensive software development experience and more importantly, experience in software development education. Since 2004 he has taught courses at Neumont University in .NET, web development and web services, XNA, systems design and architecture, and more.
Aaron's experience in teaching both DirectX and XNA for several years to university-level students helps him understand what topics are easily understood and which ones need more depth and emphasis. Through experience in the classroom he also has a good understanding of what format and sequence makes the most sense to present the material. This book follows that format and is meant to present game development concepts in the way most efficient and most comprehendible as proven in the classroom.

To be fair, a genuine novice might find some value in this book, but if you are an experienced developer you'd be far better reading the, actually rather good, tutorials on the XNA game creators site.
also the book repeatedly states that the XACT audio engine is only available in the HiDef profile and while XACT is not available to windows 7 phone development,
this has nothing to do with the HiDef/Reach profiles. Very confusing!
I also can not recommend the Kindle version of this book as the formatting is poor.
