I will say that some of the example code isn't perfect and has errors....BUT, that is because the Microsoft Kinect SDK changed since the book was published. Anyone who has used Visual Studio in the past should be able to find and fix any issues fairly quickly on their own.
On the bright side at least I got to do my own research and figure it out. Which I could have done without the look. Hence I wish I could get my money back.
The flaw may be: some program samples miss several lines, which may cause headache for learners to debug. And gesture recognition chapter ( chapter 6 ) is hard to follow since it misses quite a lot of detailed code.
BUT, a book that deals with computer vision, color, and depth streams should be color printed not monochrome (black and white). I bought the book after a saw the PDF example on the publisher's website. The PDF version is in color and all the examples are clear. Also the example codes when I first downloaded them from the publishers website (which are free) they were done using the beta SDK version and the book is discussing the new alpha SDK V1.0, I was a bit confused. I haven't checked lately if it was updated or not.
I would recommend buying the PDF version. Cheaper, in color and easy to copy and paste the code if you want.
