Short explanations and a quick sample after each explanation.
For me, it is the perfect way of learning a concept.
Examples are really detailed and make you understand what is going on behind.
One of best tech books I read.

I've already had some WCF programming books. I think this one is an interesting and useful one as it is not focus on general WCF architecture or programming guideline, but provides many individual sample cases and tips about the questions or problems we might encounter. Also, I think it would be better if the book can add more advanced programming sample cases such as building a federation service or custom security token service.

The topics in this book are very well organized so that I can read them chapter by chapter or pick up the particular ones I want. Personally I like the REST programming and Security programming chapters best.

Unlike most other WCF programming books, this book is examples driven. Having working examples of every topic is really invaluable when learning something new. The code package is simple and clear so that I can easily follow each recipe by reading the corresponding sample code.
