Format: Paperback
I found this book helpful when trying to figure out how to do a variety of development tasks such as debugging, reverse engineering, compiling, etc. The section on the development tools was helpful because it provided a guide on what's available for developers. It's easy to understand and provides some good background information on a lot of the tools and techniques. Very useful for either developers or consultants.

As goes for the standard Microsoft training manuals, this book won't get you the knowledge you need to face real-life scenarios. As a seasoned Ax developer this book had little value to add, except for some new features introduced in Ax 4.0 I wasn't aware of at the time. However, it scratches the surface but fails to deliver the in-depth details the title suggests.

Overall, good book for starters, but needs a second and third volume to finish what it started. Don't recommend it for experienced developers, unless you want it to look good on your book shelf (I admit).

Format: Paperback
Microsoft Dynamics AX is another of the very high end development system that Microsoft has been developing to make the implementation of sophisticated applications relatively easy. Specifically Dynamics AX (which has gone by several names during it's development cycle) is oriented to enterprise resource planning (ERP) applications developers. It might be viewed as a library of subroutines that perform the fundamental actions needed by an ERP system. It is then up to the developer to simply connect these subroutines together in order to produce application.

The end result can be viewed as a very high level language that contains many functions written to perform the actual work. As with any other computer language, it is something non-trivial that has to be learned. And this book is basically a tutorial on the language. It probably is something that could be learned as a language by itself, but experience in other languages, particularily C++ and SQL will ease the learning task. Obviously the reader should have some experience in ERP.

This book is written by members of the development team. It is complete and thorough, but it is a book on the Dynamics AX system, not on ERP.
