If you are looking for details about some of the 10,000 components in the XP Embedded component database, this book does not have anything.
If you want all the installation and tool operation information in one place, this book is for you. If you want more in depth information about what the XP embedded components do, save your money.
Want to build a headless system? That's Exercise 10. Want to implement Enhanced Write Filter and boot from CD ROM? That's Exercises 12 and 13. Create a custom component? Exercise 15.
To suggest that the book "doesn't include anything that can be usefull [sic] when developing with/for Windows XPe" (especially to someone who has never tried to boot XPE from CD ROM) is ludicrous - check the XPE newsgroups and you will see that many of the questions posed by newbies can be answered by completing the exercises.
Sometimes books get a bad review and that's fine, but unsubstantiated flames cannot go unanswered.
