Format: Paperback
I purchased this book to get an overview of BizTalk. The book is project based, and the author does not claim to be an expert. He simply tells you how to build the sample project he designed for the book from start to finish.

I purchased several books on BizTalk at the same time, so I didn't take the time to build the project as yet. However, from what I've read on BizTalk todate, I found even an average BizTalk project can become quite technical, and as such; I will certainly start with this books project if I do decide BizTalk is the way to go.

This is a very good introduction to BizTalk 2006 and its use of Visual Studio 2005. What I found to be lacking are references to others reference materials for a more detailed look in the two tools
