From the reviews:
"The book’s six chapters provide insight into programming with networked devices. … All in all, this could be a useful book for a high school student seeking a computer-based science project. Once the basic devices are operating, an industrious student or hobbyist could extend the project in order to incorporate additional operational features. The illustrations are clear, and an index is provided." (J. S. Edwards, ACM Computing Reviews, Vol. 49 (8), August, 2008)

It did the job for me.
The examples worked and were well presented in both C#.NET and VB.NET
Overall I just felt this was a very poor example of "Practical" .Net 2.0 networking and device projects, and I feel this book has very little applicable use in real world programming.
However, if you want to get a quick start on using any of the technologies such as fingerprint readers, GPS, and RFID this is a great primer. The author provides up to date examples, provides you references for the proper tools, and SDK's needed to complete the project. I built a fingerprint reading application based off his example for tracking visitors to the User Group meetings I attend.
I've always wanted to know how to develop applications using external devices, but haven't had the time to dig in and research it. This book will give you a great starting point and will have a working application quickly. It is a fun book and will give you the basics on these technologies.
One comment would be that it would have been nice to have at the beginning of each chapter/section a quick reference list for resources you will need. Also, since I typically jump ahead, I found that in the case of the fingerprint reader there was an issue when trying to add the control to the form and I spent sometime working through that on my own. Then I turned the page and the author has kindly put the resolution in a big gray box. Would have saved me a little time if I would have read that!
