“ [is] a valuable resource for those who do not have the time to gather the information contained within its covers through trawling the Internet”
— Jok Gilchrist,
“Of the published Atlas references out there, this one is worth the read.”
— Yow-Hann Lee, blog
“So... If you're already using Visual Studio tools and .NET to program your applications, definitely use Atlas to let Microsoft do the heavy lifting for you. This particular book can help you consolidate all the information that's been written to date on the technology, and allow you to get moving more quickly than you would if you decided to dig it all out via the Web.”
— Thomas Duff, Duffbert's Random Musings
