Let me set the record straight. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a deeper understanding of Silverlight 4.
This book covers three sections of Silverlight 4:
- Develop Silverlight Application
- Interact with Web
- Advance with Media
Each of these sections uses a problem/solution approach that covers not only the basics of Silverlight but all the topics you need to get you started. The book does not assume that you know anything about Silverlight. The author has included a entire chapter (11) showing you the basics.
The author has provided well-written problems and solutions that you would face in the real-world. The flow is excellent covering various situations taking you step by step along with complete source code. One of the great features of this book is that it has a quick index of all the problems that are solved, you can take a look at the index and get straight to the problem you are trying to solve. Excellent work!
Overall I strongly recommend this book to everyone as it is nice to read the book and also could be used as a reference.
