Format: Paperback
This book is actually quite well written with sufficient information to get a beginner to start programming a windows phone 7 application. However, there is even more free information on the web that makes this book redundant. Check out the 'how-to' videos and the 'code samples' for Windows Phone from Microsoft before investing money in this book.

Great book! Got me up and going quick. On the way to my first WIndows Phone App. May 31 2011
By mcmoore2 - Published on
Format: Paperback
I wanted to get on board with Windows Phone development, I know a lot of folks making good money with apps. This was an easy read. I did not have much time for reading and needed to get the know-how quickly. I was able to create my first project in under 4 hours after reading the first 3 chapters. I was greatful to find a book with good code examples and stright to the point. I started to read a few of the other 800+ page Window Phone books out there, but got bogged down in nonsense. This book gave me hope and it really worked. Practical, to the point and a great extras CD.

Did not meet my expectations May 24 2011

It's very difficult to read the codes in the video and I always have to stretch my eyes to follow. Even youtube videos that teaches windows phone programming are easier to see the code.Windows Phone 7 Application Development: 24 Hour Trainer. This is one of the worst books in the series 24 hour Trainer

There are no source codes uploaded in the Wrox websites as promised in the book (as far as 5/20/2011). After reading a few chapters, I could tell this is the first time the author writes a book. Many errors in the books should have been avoided easily and the author, the editor missed them.

Update 7/25/2012: The source code has been uploaded to Wrox website. One of the errors is corrected. After a year I come back and see many positive reviews written before mine are deleted. So my review is now the first one written for this book. Unfortunately I bought the book because of those positive reviews. However more people still disagree with my review. Beware of positive review from a person who only writes one single review for this book. I have never finished reading chapter 3. Go to Wrox website and read the work around by the author. That should have been included in the book. May be you can finish chapter 3 after follow the author's correction.
