Please try again later. I bought this book in July and it sat on the shelf until two weeks ago. Very quickly, I felt a little overwhelmed with all the details coming at me and no "mental mailbox" to keep them in perspective. I've found this is very common with technical books. It's not that the authors don't know their stuff. They do, but they don't write from the perspective of the reader and, as a result, little knowledge transfer takes place during the first read.
Fortunately, I remembered this book and started reading. Here was an author that understood how to transfer understanding to users very effectively!
His writing style and fantastic illustrations had me really understanding things in a hurry. No other author had presented them to me in a way that "stuck to the wall". They are extremely powerful once you understand them and know how to leverage what they can deliver. With Dan's help, I'm now very comfortable with them. I'm a long time programmer specializing in delivering solutions on the Microsoft platform. I avoided WPF till now because it was such a major change and one I was a little intimidated by. I've now decided to take the plunge.
Without this book, it would be a much more difficult task. With this book, I think my odds of WPF success have improved dramatically! If you want help from somebody who not only knows WPF, but also knows how to teach and achieve true knowledge transfer, buy this book!
Illustrated WPF (Expert's Voice in .NET) - Technology and Engineering eBooks
The content of this book seems sufficient for learning the basics of WPF but I'm not sure it does more than that. I'm an expert MVC4 developer and I was hoping to learn more about the framework but I feel it barely scratches the surface on a lot of topics. It's enough to whet my apatite for learning WPF, but I feel that I'll need to buy another book to take me to the expert level. One of my largest issues with this book has been expressed by many other reviewers -- the image quality is horrible. The text is fine, and when text is called out in the grey boxes, that is fine as well It looks as if the images used were highly compressed since there are compression artifacts and blurring in every case.
This quality flaw makes reading the text on buttons and menus nearly impossible; text in callouts of imaged code blocks is small and that adds to the frustration.

Solis' image on the first page is clear, though. Whoever published, and released, this book with this obvious flaw should reconsider their position. For the author -- I've seen your replied to other posters implying they might have inferior 'bootlegged' digital formats; however, I assure you, my physical copy was legally purchased through Amazon as a new book and it has these issues.

I've written 7 books, so I'm a bit of a "clear writing" snob. I've purchased a bookshelf full of C and WPF books, but this is the one that makes the most sense to me. While most books have a brief intro to an example and expect you to inductively figure out the technology from the example, Daniel actually explains the technology and then presents the example. From another author who can judge writing quality, this is the best book to buy on WPF, it's far better than some of the other highly rated books regardless of the page count.
Daniel's clear thinking shines through his concise writing style. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. This is the best WPF book I have read, so far. It explains the basic concepts of WPF in a way that is easy to understand and it doesn't rely on the reader having prior experience with WPF, unlike certain other books do. The book covers basic concepts, such as how to use many of the available WPF controls and it covers the slightly deeper concepts, such as how to use styles, templates, dependency properties, animations, routing events and commands.
The examples in the book are simple and easily readable, although the Kindle edition shows the sample code as black and white images, which can not be searched and which do not scale well together with the text.
