This is the definitive (and probably the only formal) reference for EntLib.

If you like holding a physical copy, sure, get it from here, but if all you want is an ecopy, just search for the name of the book - Developer's Guide to Microsoft Enterprise Library, 2nd Edition on a search engine and you can find an .epub and a .pdf on the MSDN site.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Daniel Piessens on December 2, 2013
Format: Paperback
The Developer's Guide to Microsoft Enterprise Library is a great guide to development with Enterprise Library. This version of the library includes a new block called Semantic Logging which is extremely powerful but a paradigm shift from what many developers are used to. The book provides a wonderful introduction to this topic as well as complete examples of how to use the block.

The book also contains excellent references on the rest of Enterprise Library along with easy to understand examples that makes the technology easy to integrate with an application.
