3.0 out of 5 stars Answers the question "How would I do that in Silverlight?", October 10, 2010
This review is from: Microsoft® Silverlight® 4 Step by Step (Step by Step Developer) (Kindle Edition)
If you are new to Silverlight and learn by doing, this is the book for you. Laurence proceeds step by step with recipes to do many common tasks in Silverlight. This is a book that can help you go from zero to a first application in just a few hours.

The basics of Silverlight controls, layout and animation are covered quickly. An unexpected and welcome surprise is coverage of some advanced media topics. There is a recipe for creating your own video player, and examples that show how to build Deep Zoom and Photosynth experiences. There are also chapters specific to developing for Windows Phone 7, an exciting new Silverlight platform.

The book format lends itself well to jumping in at any point. The focus is on the developer, so almost all of the examples show how to accomplish tasks in Visual Studio rather than using Expression Blend.

Topics that would be beneficial to a future edition include data binding, advanced layout and the role of dependency properties.
