The book has some nice chapters. In special the two chapters in Point Cloud Library (PCL) , Voxelization and Multiple Kinects.
It also has good tips for the installation of some of this opensource libraries.
The problem with the book, is that goes all over the place. If you want this book as a reference, then buy it. You could also use it as your first book for Kinect.
Why do I say it goes all over the place?
One example is in chapter 7, out of the blue, opengl appears. There are many examples like this. For example, in chapter 2, while talking about the hardware, it talks about using it with arduino.
This is why I think this book serves better as an addition to you kinect library more than your first kinect book.
If you are using the Kinect SDK, I do recommend Programming with the Kinect for Windows SDK.
I'm waiting to receive Kinect for Windows SDK Programming Guide. It may be even better, but I don't know yet. I will review this book later in march 2013.
