Silverlight 5 has the potential to revolutionize the way we build business applications. With its flexibility, web deployment, cross-platform capabilities, rich .NET language support on the client, rich user interface control set, small runtime, and more, it comes close to the perfect platform on which to build business applications. It’s a very powerful technology, and despite its youth, it’s moving forward at a rapid pace and is gaining widespread popularity.

What people are saying - Write a review
Need to provide more resources about how to solve problems practically. I compare SL5 & SL4 there is only few topics are new in this book the rest of the things are same as SL4.
Ex : book provide link to kyle for combobox article (but even if we try by that sample code still not working the selected item)
problem solving not included ,how to write diff converters etc, pete brown's book is also not helpful thatmuch.
adv: for begginers it will be helpful, it will just provide the direction where to go.
