    A diverse, task-based approach to learning BizTalk 2010

    Overall, I think the read was worthwhile since it helped me fill in some knowledge gaps in BizTalk and introduced me to some of the new features in BizTalk 2010. I am looking at this from the perspective of an experienced BizTalk 2006 R2 developer.   The material is pretty diverse and spread across 11 chapters - each covering a different area of BizTalk. Each chapter is broken down into several (8 to 25) sections that take the following format: problem, followed by solution, followed by an explanation. While this format works for some of the content, it does not work for all of it and can end up confusing the reader. Here, I believe a tradeoff was made for consistency over accuracy because the "how it works" section does not always describe the "how" but the "why" or the "when."   I believe a beginner to intermediate BizTalk developer would gain the most out of this book, while some value can still be had for the intermediate to advanced BizTalk developer - though not as much since Mark does not cover the deeper scenarios that they may be looking for. The book covered core scenarios in key areas well - schemas, maps, and orchestrations. It also covered other core scenarios or features in other areas such as business rules, EDI, deployment, administration, business activity monitoring, and non-WCF adapters. I especially liked chapter 1 of the book being all about the new features in BizTalk 2010. While it might seem confusing for a new to BizTalk developer, it is great for those that have used previous versions of BizTalk.   I was hoping that areas outside the core product such as ESB Toolkit would be covered and thought it a strange omission that WCF adapters were not included in the Adapters chapter or anywhere in the book at all. They have been a part of BizTalk since 2006 R2. This was probably the largest disappointment in the book for me personally, as I was looking forward to Mark's take on WCF adapters.   Overall, I thought reading BizTalk 2010 Recipes: A Problem-Solution Approach was worth my time. For the developer with beginner to intermediate-level skills in BizTalk development, I would rate this book a 4+ out of 5. For intermediate to advanced skillsets, I would rate this book a 3 out of 5, since it did not cover more advanced and/or obscure topics.

    Excellent for Beginning to Intermediate BizTalk Developers

    BizTalk 2010 Recipes is a great book for the BizTalk developer who would like a basic step-by-step instruction list or a reference book on how to perform most tasks in the BizTalk environment. BizTalk is a large and difficult product to learn and master and Beckner's book provides a great resource for the beginning to intermediate level BizTalk developer to do just that.

    The layout of the book is very straightforward. A standard BizTalk task is presented, step by step instructions are provided to complete the task and then an explanation of some of the major technical points is given. I found the first section of the book on the new features of BizTalk 2010 to be particularly useful and recommend it for any user of previous BizTalk versions to get up to speed.

    Beckner writes in a very accessible style--this book is an incredibly easy read. The examples are appropriate and "real world" enough to be useful and the explanations are technically sound and understandable. It is also covers all the basic functionality within BizTalk-schemas, maps, orchestration, BRE, etc. as well as some of the less-used features such as EDI.

    Although I really liked Beckner's writing style and the step-by-step approach to performing BizTalk tasks, I felt that the book does in some ways falls short of the goal provided in the title. While I was looking for a resource for discussion and insight into solving more Business or Architectural oriented problems, I found the approach in BizTalk 2010 Recipes to be more of a run-down of BizTalk features and a description of how to use them.

    That is a valuable service all in itself, and I highly recommend this book for that use. However, if you're really looking for something to help with BizTalk "recipes" from a business problem or architectural patterns point of view, another book, such as Seroter's BizTalk SOA book might serve that purpose better
