I don’t do enough book reviews on this site, but I felt that this book has influenced me enough to say something.  Chris Sells and Ian Griffiths have a great book on their hands.  I enjoyed the “Hello Avalon…” approach to the early chapters, but this book really helped me delve into the the tricky details of XAML data binding, animation and click-once deployment of WPF apps.  I tend to not finish reading most technical books because they are written as references, not books.  This book takes the departure and is actually readable.  Chris and Ian are both masters of a story-driven approach to technical writing that I really enjoy.  If you want to understand what WPF is all about or are using XAML in new projects, pick up this book.
