I think this is a great idea and something can be used in real life.
Alper Akan
Along with basic knowledge about the architecture, concepts and tools, you'll find plenty of good code examples to illustrate the explained topics.
Palle Agermark
All by all I do recommend reading the book especially when you are new to Ax and want to learn modifying it fast.

This is a great book for functional AX folks who wants to step into AX development but it is a little short on the developers who wants to learn about AX development. As it can be understood from it`s title it just gets you started in this area. For more information, official AX development manuals are needed since they are over 1000+ pages. It is well put together and starts with a little bit of general information about AX and then gets complicated with AOT and X++. It really summarizes how the different modules interact with each other in a functional way so the developers can understand the work-flow in AX better. I think this is a very key point that the official dev. manuals are missing. ERD`s really helps developers to understand and visualize the lay-out in AX in a time efficient way. The book starts developing a car rental application and walks you through necessary steps. I think this is a great idea and something can be used in real life. It includes creating tables, forms, queries, reports and menu's basically all the information to create a basic module from scratch.

In my opinion in some areas, the book is over-focused on unnecessary things like export/import and missing some other key elements where the official manuals come into play.The codes that are provided seemed pretty accurate excluding the typos. I think the editor could do a better job on this rather than using word spelling check.

Overall, I am giving this book 4 stars. The reason I am giving 4 stars is that some of the information is kind of outdated. The book got stuck into 4.0 version and did not consider the improvements in 2009. Since the new version is coming out soon, some of the information is going to be useless.

This is an excellent book for getting started with AX. The book's language is straight forward and simple, so you don't need a computer science education to reap the gold nuggets buried inside.

The first half of the book is a case study of a step-by-step implementation of a car rental application. This is a great idea, as these steps take you through many areas of AX development, and on the way introduces you to most of the building blocks of X++. The approach used is to jump straight into the action, without spending many words on background information, which quite impressively doesn't make the material harder to grasp, but rather makes the book a pleasant and easy read. The book is full of source code examples and screenshots, which will make it easy for you to follow the same steps in your own AX installation.

The second half of the book is a collection of standalone chapters. I particularly liked the chapter on integration with various AX modules. This chapter provides a 10,000 feet overview of the main modules in AX, such as GL, AR, AP and Inventory. Further it provides code samples on how common customizations can be implemented.

There are two kinds of books. Those that struggle to reach the final page count by cutting the original manuscript, and those that struggle to produce enough pages to justify calling it a book. (Something similar is true for sauces). This book is of the latter kind, which is a shame. Important information even for beginners is missing in critical places; whereas plenty of pages are spent on low value information. For example, the book contains a 10 page source dump of an data export/import feature the author has implemented - not because the one already in AX isn't good enough, but simply because he could.
