I didn't finish it, but then I rarely do read technical books cover to cover.

This book was written based on a beta version of .NET3.0. Since I tried to use it to write .NET 3.5 code, the tutorials didn't always match. The sample code on the author's website has been brought up to .NET 3.5, so that was helpful.

Also, every example was .NET talking to .NET. I found this very limiting, and the client I was using was Javascript.

Still, I found the book valuable.

I'm reading this for my job. I've jumped around a bit, but by and large, it is a very illuminating book on WCF, and even on SOAP.

This book was all I needed to pass my Microsoft 70-503 exam (in addition to working on a project using some WCF-services)
