The book is wroth less then nothing. Besides a lot of useless stuff (like 2 pages of XAML code just to write about one line) there is one chapter that I hoped to be useful: contracts and extensions. Actually I appeared to be the worst one. Nothing is explained. In some cases the authors are really rude. They just write: go and find a solution somewhere. All in all I recoment to keep away from this garbage book.
