Great WPF Book
If you are new to WPF this is the correct book to read, it is a full colored book with many step by step examples, you just need to know some XML and be familiar with Visual Studio 2008 (Express Recommended- Samples will also work on the Standard or Pro Versions). This book gives you an introduction to all WPF (Windows Presentation Foundation) features from basic layouts to Complex custom Controls and Data Visualization, on the last chapter it walks you through the process of creating an animated Media Player From Scratch.Was this review helpful?

100% Recommended for new WPF users (not recommended for advanced users).

Good basic WPF book
Geared toward the beginner, easy to follow. Sample programs use Visual Studio 2008 Express download. The sample programs don't work on my system because I have Visual Studio 2008 Standard Edition with Vista 64-bit.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I wish BN would list all there computer book prerequisites better on there web site. So, people can determine if the book software versions will work on there computer. I actually have to read the first part of the book to see if the software samples will work.
Pages are glossy; making it is hard to read with desk lamps reflecting off the pages. A mat finish would be better. The colored pages are nice.
