Format: Paperback
This book is okay. First of all you should be aware that it is available for free on MSDN. The first couple chapters are a good setup for why you may want to use DI, and why you may want to use some alternative designs. This portion is very good. Once you get into chapter 3 however- it jumps right into unity. And the example it uses is taxing and hard to follow. They go from good simple examples... you would think they would build on them incrementally. But unfortunately this is not the case... they just throw out a full blown "real world" example that tries to explain too much at once. It is hard to follow and understand. I think this book is an asset on the shelf, but if you are getting started with DI and unity I would look for supplemental material. Unfortunately at this stage I have no suggestions... I am expecting "Dependency Injection in .Net" today... hopefully this will be a better, more incremental introduction.

I had started using Unity on one of my projects when I found this book.

To be honest, I read is quickly to see what I might be missing. Turns out I wasn't missing a whole lot. But the section on using Unity for Interception was quite useful.

Be forewarned, this book is LOADED with code. Maybe too much. I expect programming books to have code, but I prefer the code to come in smaller sections or to be heavily commented. The code in this book follows neither convention.

Also, be aware that if you get the kindle version of the book, the code may be difficult to read on that device or any of it's readers.

I use it as a reference now when I want to verify how I might implement something related to the Unity framework.

This guide is not only the best reference I've read on how develop applications correctly using Unity, but also offers an excellent introduction on Dependency injection in general. Most guides just work their way through the API with little regard for background or thought process, but this guide is different. It takes a task-based approach on how to accomplish various concepts of dependency injection and then explains how to perform them with Unity. I would recommend this for both beginners and experienced Unity developers, everyone will learn something new!
