In my opinion, WPF Unleashed is a book with strengths and weaknesses. I like to end on a positive note when I can, so let's get the weaknesses out of the way first:


Chapters 2 and 3 introduce the bulk of the new concepts in WPF. This is a technology with a large number of vitally important details which need to be understood - not to mention a deceptively complex new markup language!

Adam Nathan introduces all of the new concepts in a 60 page whirlwind at the beginning of the book. From

The book starts pretty basic, but gives a very detailed dive into CSS. This book shows you the different hacks needed for different browsers (ugh ugh IE)! David gives some really interesting tips and sites which display the power of CSS.

I believe I'll use this book as a CSS reference for months to come.

This is a great book. As you read it, questions will pop into your head and the book seems to anticipate your questions and answer them... It is exactly how a technical book should be! This book isn't really reference-only either. You can sit down and read through it if you can resist the urge to go start toying with WPF...

I did a VERY quick read of this book, after reading Ian Griffith's and Charles Petzold's first more thoroughly. The book is directed towards experienced .Net developers, and explains all the new concepts in WPF in a good way. The formatting of the book is fantastic, with colors and lots of graphics.

This book is a good Jumpstart for learning WPF. It starts by explaining the new concepts introduced by WPF, then dives deeper in the different controls, styling mechanisms,...

Shortly, it covers what you need to know to start WPF development. Good book!

This is a great book on WPF. Just the printing itself is great -- full color every page! Each of the little "gotcha" boxes is extremely enlightening. This book is written by somebody who knows the internals of WPF very well.

One of the best programming books I've read. It's extremely readable and extremely informative. It's a great introduction to the huge technology that is WPF.

Good book for WPF beginners but it does not go deep enough on certain levels (and in my opinion, it should)
