This is/was one of the core WPF guide for me for almost 18 months, beautifully explains advanced WPF concepts that are really hard to explain, (and with comparison to other WPF Books who end up mixing those concept in a big mix. A must have from Beginner to Intermediate level user on WPF.

On the down low, I won't recommend this book for highly advanced WPF Concepts, it misses many advanced stuff like custom controls (specifically ItemsControl), AutomationPeers, Advanced HitTesting, Adorners etc.
