"My credit goes to O'Reilly with series of books I consider to be the best in the field:
Programming WCF Services, Programming Windows Presentation Foundation, and now Programming WPF. "
--Stanislav Dvoychenko, Plain Old Stan
"Of all the programming books I've
reviewed over the last couple of years, I found this to be one of the most
well written, and easiest to follow...I highly recommend Programming WPF. This may very well be considered
the Bible of this technology."
--Nick Schweitzer, Blogcritics Magazine
"Weighing in at a little over 400 pages, it is not possible to cover every facet of WPF. However the author does a fairly thorough job covering each chapter. Enough detail is provided so that the reader gains a good beginning knowledge of the topic and can build on it themselves."
--Todd Miranda, Internet Professionals Society of Alabama
