This book is good only if you know windows phone application development. This is in no way beginning windows phone 7 development. The first chap is introduction, 2nd chap is Hello World, 3rd Azure, 4th errors and debugging, 5th packaging? Its nicely explained though but the book could have been designed properly. It could have covered simple things first and then taken complex things.
This is not the book to start with, having said that I would recommend to give it a read after knowing windows phone application development a bit. Read simple things from some other book or from online resources and then give this a read.
I personally have to still complete this book but will do it after learning some basic stuff. I could do only 6 chapters, will for sure read this book
BEWARE!! I'm not discouraging you (yet) from purchasing this text, but you should be aware of something before proceeding. I am 26 pages into this book thus far, and have encountered between 5 and 10 typos/incomplete sentences/mistakes. This was apparently, an extreme rush job, and not thoroughly reviewed.
I've had to stop my progress/practice several times already to figure out what the author(s) either meant to say, or figure out what they've left out. So, depending on your personality type, this may cause anything from a mild nuisance to a "show stopper".
