Recommends it for: People wanting to learn the WPF libraries and wanting to use C#.
This book does a good job of introducing the WPF environment as used with C# 2008. I've so far found only one slight mistake. This book does not cover all the elements of C#, but only those related to the new WPF namespaces and practices. For someone with a background in programming, it is enough to get started in the C# 2008 WPF environment, though some online searches and/or an additional reference book would be recommended if you aren't already familiar with C#.

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.
