Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
I just finished chapter 6 in which I found a shocking fact! The writer tries even to cheat to make the example about Message Contracts work! The source code of the example (provided as a download from Wrox) is different from the source code he shows in the book. This is because the source code shown in the book would not even compile. So what he does in the downloadable source code is that he deletes the lines where the compiler gives errors and then the code does not even call the service! and to make the example look like as if it worked he just sets the string that is expected to be returned from the service on a label ,all that inside the client program! This really pissed me off! A book writer with such ethics?!
So up to chapter 6 I've found tens of errors (including errors about WCF principle) and a fake example! I wonder how much more is ahead!
DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS "THING" (I won't call it a book)
It could be useful as quick reference for API details but I would not recommend this book to new learners.
You can find definitions on lots of classes and methods but it does not provide realistic code examples or diagrams that help visualize conceptual frame works.
