The book looks good at first glance, however, if you try to create some of the apps in the book they don't work. Some of the code is wrong, leaving you to look on the Internet to find the right way to it. There are errors in some of the code that can't be resolved. The book left my husband scratching his head, and he is a software engineer. Don't even bother with it, not worth the money!

This is my favorite Windows Phone 7 book. This book is all about build WP7 applications. Although it can be used as a reference, it really should be read from front to back. This book is for people to like to see how to build applications, from start to finish. The code is color highlighted just like the reader would see in Visual Studio. Making the code easy and a pleasure to read. Fifty chapters with fifty applications. Each chapter is an application that teaches a topic. Everything from a simple Flashlight application to storing / retrieving local data, audio / video, working with the microphone, animations, multi-touch and accelerometer tricks. Throughout the book there is color boxes with a wealth of information, from tidbits to questions that the reader might be asking themselves, to warnings, to important information the reader should know when developing WP7 applications. This book was recommended to me by one of members in my programming group, and he was right it's a very good book. One thing, this is not a beginner's book, the author states so at the beginning of the book. To get the most out of this book the more C#, Silverlight the reader knows the better. Still knowing just the basics of C# and Silverlight, the reader should not have any problem.

This book is available as a Nook book. However, B&N refuses to even comment on the possibility of a Nook app for Windows Phone 7. The irony of this is not lost on me. Maybe the author, Adam Nathan, can create a boot-leg Nook app so we can actually read his book on our Windows Phones!
