5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome introduction May 20 2009
By Daniel E. Woolston - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Having worked with both products,individually, it was nice to find published work on the collaboration of Sharepoint and Silverlight. The text is an easy read and the examples are well described. If you're new to either of the technologies, this is the book for you.
My only criticisms: the cover price was too high. I understand that the authors have no control over that, but wrox needs to be realistic when pricing their books. While the content of the book was good, I wouldn't say that there was enough material to warrant a $50 cover. Amazon has it for $31, but i bought mine at the local Barnes and Nobles. Obviously, the convenience offset the cost difference, but I felt the book should have come in at a $40 cover.
Also, there is a lot of huge screenshots and unnecessary code listings in the book. If you were to shrink the shots down and pull out the VB code (leaving C#), this book would probably run about 200 pages. Here again, including the VB code alongside the C# code may be a Wrox thing, so I didn't let that affect my rating of the work. When I published through Apress, I was fortunate to have the option of not including both languages.
Overall...a great book and definitely a worthwhile addition to your tech library.

By J. Shelby - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Lots of good examples on how to use Silverlight with SharePoint. If youre a SharePoint developer just getting started or interested in Silverlight, get this book. It has a good introduction on Silverlight and the basics of getting started before jumping into the integration stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic resource for SharePoint developers new to Silverlight March 8 2009
By Andrew Connell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I don't have a ton of experience with Silverlight, but I am a seasoned SharePoint developer. Steve and Paul do a fantastic job of covering just about everything you'd want to do with Silverlight in this book. It isn't so much a Silverlight reference, but it covers almost everything you'd want to do with it in SharePoint from talking to ASMX/WCF services, how to deploy and host the Silverlight controls in SharePoint and even some slick Web Part development topics tool. Great resource!
