A brief summary of Windows 8 development for beginner-intermediate level covering the basics, not much insight. The book is quote short though: finished in one go in the evening.

I bought this book, and the printing is so poor. It is not the authors fault, but it is Apress's fault. For instance, the first letter of a word would be on the previous word and the remaining letters as a new word. It makes reading unbearable. This only applies to headings, but it makes you uncomfortable wanting to read it.

EDIT: Please see the customer images of the book which I have uploaded of a sample page to give an indication of how the book is uncomfortable to read.

This is an excellent starter guide to get you up and running, a detailed working of an example application covering all the major elements that define a Windows Store application. Easy to read and short enough to read cover to cover in a day. I found it very useful.

Bought this book ages ago... I was a developer years ago... I need to relearn all the new techniques .

I just quick scanned to see content... Looks really good... Looking forward to going through it again using VS 2013.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pithy, but dense 23 Oct. 2012
By B. Clay Shannon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
While obviously rushed out the gate to be the first "Metro" book on the block (many times he mentions that certain parts of the code are bolded, and they are not - the book was apparently not very well proofread and/ or the formatter fell down on the job), I find this book very valuable based on the two criteria I use - was it worth the time to read it, and was it worth the money? In both cases, I give it a resounding yes. I have purchased a few more Windows 8 Development books (one is on the way and the others are pre-ordered), but this one being available early made it extremely valuable to me. Much of the info can be found online, but it's convenient to have it in one place, and for me, to have it in physical form so that I can read it outside sitting on my deck or inside in bed. At this juncture (many "Metro" dev books will be released soon), a person may prefer an expanded and updated book by Mr. Freeman or someone else.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Bit on the Weak Side 17 Sept. 2012
By E. Tom Jorgenson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Didn't provide any in depth information about much of anything and certainly didn't get into the more complex topics. Not enough meat to bring a developer to the point of building any sort of real-world application. More of an introduction.
3.0 out of 5 stars I learned a lot. 2 Jan. 2013
By MP - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book contains several mistakes. I learned more when I begin to use it as a reference.
It should be simpler and more straight forward.

1.0 out of 5 stars More a handout than a book 30 Aug. 2012
By Roman Mueller - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was already a bit disappointed when I got the book by mail. It is just a small one, almost a handout. It covers the basic programming of Metro apps but doesn't include much more than you could get out of the internet within an hour. If you already know a bit of C# programming and WPF, then this book is obsolete in my opinion.
