Gill Cleeren, with whom I wrote this book, posted a blog update with some reviews. And I’m pleased to say: they’re good, very good even! :-) Here are some excerpts:
Richard Costall’s review:
Microsoft Silverlight 4 Data and Services Cookbook is a great publication, and worthy of a place any Silverlight developers bookshelf. The formula of ‘recipes’ works well, with well explained, yet simple examples covering almost everything you’d ask when starting out building business applications in Silverlight. It highlights Silverlight 2 and Silverlight 3 functionality differences, yet is right up to date on Silverlight 4.
Damir Tomicic’s review:
Das Buch ist sehr praktisch geschrieben. Der Leser merkt sofort, dass Gill und Kevin die Ansätze selbst ausprobiert und für die Leser optimiert haben. Die gewählte Sprache ist einfach, die Beispiele auch für Anfänger geeignet. Ein guter Einstieg in das Thema.
