A fantastic book
on 16 April 2011
I have to admit I love the sams 24 hour books, to the extent I even have a professional paranoia about them stopping making them.
This book is like the others, it gives you an excellent understanding of the topic in 24 relatively easy lessons, and by the end you will be a very capable WPF programmer. You'll need to brush up on MVVM but that's just a few online tutorials (it's just a pattern afterall).
Critics point out this book has a lot less pages that other WPF books and doesn't go as deep as a reference book. The point is, this book will get you very good a lot quicker than any other book and your understanding of the fundamentals of WPF (and it's differences from WinForms) will be excellent. What's the point of buying a 1100 page textbook if it's in a format that doesn't teach you anything?
