Pro WPF in C# 2008: Windows Presentation Foundation with .NET 3.5
The Microsoft Windows Presentation Foundation provides the foundation for building applications and high–quality user experiences in Windows Vista. WPF blends application user interface, documents, and media content to provide richer control, design, and development of the visual aspects of Windows programs.
Author Matthew MacDonald shows you how WPF really works. His no–nonsense, practical advice will get you building high–quality WPF applications quickly and easily. MacDonald will take you through a thorough investigation of the more advanced aspects of WPF, and its relation to other elements of the WinFX stack and the .NET Framework 3.5, to complete your understanding of WPF and C# 2008.
WPF's functionality extends to support for tablet PCs and other forms of input devices, and provides a more modern imaging and printing pipeline, accessibility and user interface automation infrastructure, data–driven user interface and visualization, as well as the integration points for weaving the application experience into the Windows shell.What you’ll learn

Review: Pro WPF in C# 2010: Windows Presentation Foundation in .NET 4User Review - Goodreads
A good book. It has some weaknesses though as it augments some of the "code-behind" sections that could become in handy sometimes for real-time object creation\destruction if someone doesn't want to use the MVVM model.

The most complete book on WPF. If you are looking for a "think in WPF book" to read cover to cover I advise instead: WPF 4 Unleashed and use Pro WPF in C# 2010 as a reference to go deeper when you need. Read full review
