I'm not sure what this book is supposed to be: It doesn't teach anything, it doesn't give any details. Instead it's a very shallow survey of a small subset of the .NET Micro development space. It's not valueless, maybe your manager will enjoy it :-)

I can't recommend buying it, however. Save your money.

as i am starting out in Micro Framework, i picked up a few books dedicated to this endeavor. For my self this book did not hit the mark. Seems like the author was to in a rush to explain things and did not wind up understanding things. He shows examples, but for me the lower understanding why do this over that was missing for me. Seemed he was rushed to write it, went through concepts to quickly.
I would not pick this book up.

The book seems well written, there are examples with commercial development boards in the examples that most any developer can follow. However, the whole Micro Framework is very disappointing as it there is no native code compiler.

If you are interested in this book then chances are that you are a MS developer. While I do have a MCSD certification I have been an embedded software engineer (usually with Linux or VxWorks) for over 10 years and most/all embedded development work is generally done in C/C++ or assembly language for a reason; size and speed. If you don't count something like a Cisco OC-192 router most embedded systems run with the minimum possible hardware. Every nickel that you need to add to compensate for lacking development tools hits the bottom line much more than it does in the PC world.

While I believe that the Windows CE environment would produce adequate runtime performance something like this Micro Framework which always runs as interpreted code is only suitable for a research tinker toy. IMHO I still believe that embedded projects are better done with C/C++/Linux but if you want to work with MS tools then focus on Windows CE. There are Windows CE books that cover the same ground and the end result would probably be more marketable than one based on the Micro Framework.
