"I have read WCF concepts from other books and from MSDN before, but they all seemed more like documentation rather than well knit set of concepts. This book nicely dwells into the philosophy of Service Oriented Applications, from the standpoint of WCF...The chapters I think really made fall in love with this book are chapter 7 and chapter 8, Transactions and Concurrency management. I was never really able to get well beyond basic understanding of WCF and grasp these complex concepts from other sources the way this book helped me grasp them. "
--Naveen Razdhan, San Gabriel Valley .NET Users Group
"If you are working with WCF then this is an essential book but you might want to look else where for a beginner's book."
--Mike James, Visual Systems Journal, February 2009
"Juval Lowy (once again!) has written an extraordinary book. Seemingly he has an absolute and complete knowledge on the subject. What strikes me even more, is how careful and lovingly Juval leads the reader through the forest of technical details to the deep and solid understanding of both underlying technology and practical implementation of WCF.
If after hours of reading you suddenly feel lost, all you have to do is go back half a page and you are on track again.
I just wish I had such a wonderful teacher every time I have to learn something new."
