My only criticism of the book is that it does not provide a contextual background for existing users of previous distributed technologies (asmx web services, remoting, etc). However this is entirely understandable given that the whole point of WCF is to abstract these technologies into a common framework.
The code is all in C# and it does get a little hard going at times but there isn't a single wasted line in this book. It will serve well as both a (steep) learning curve and a reference guide. An essential purchase for all .NET developers.
It appears that first chapter attempts to scare you and simply overload you with information. It has code examples which are not complete and appear to be pointless. It can't be followed as a tutorial and it gets into too many details.
I'm very annoyed with this purchase.
