I purchased this a few weeks ago as my organization is trying to be more development based. Great teaching!! I've running into some issues with errors occurring when I deploy my own services but I think that is more my lack of understanding then any fault on the books part. I have both the eBook and the hard-copy. I love the attention to not only showing how to make WCF work with Entity Framework but also correct structure of the code. Even when shortcuts are taken, the correct method is mentioned.
