Bookreview: Mastering LOB Development for Silverlight 5: A Case Study in Action

Excellent Reference for Professional Silverlight Development (4 stars)

Over all the book is great. it comes all the key areas, has lots of samples and is a great reference. I liked the fact that it spent time going over things that are neglected such as MVVM and general architecture. On the down side I felt that some of the reference examples were overly complex. I guess this is sort of a mixed bag in that the examples were good and real world but for digesting things like MVVM for the first time the example is not a simple as it could be. For the professional developer though this really is comprehensive and well done. The case study term usage in the title might shy some one away but after reviewing the book it is well worth the cost and a excellent resources.
