The book can also be read cover to cover, but there are 763 pages of primary content so I treat it as a reference book. I also found the screen shots to be clear and easy to read.
The only thing that I did not prefer is that the code is in VB and I code in C#. However, there is so little code (4-5 lines every 10 pages or so), that it really is not an issue.
Now that I have, I would like to say that the book and the examples are both excellent. I'm a 60 year old programmer with poor eyesight and I had no problem viewing the examples printed in the book.
This author always does an excellent job of presenting the material and no one should hold back from buying the book because of someones bogus review.
If you don't mind the print quality, then this appears to be a very good book for understanding LightSwitch in more depth.
I did look at the summary pages of the ebook version and they are much more easily read and acceptable, so all is not in vain and I highly recommend purchasing the book this way but not the printed version. Perhaps the publisher can improve the print quality of this book without too much difficulty. If I were the author I would insist that the publisher do somethinhaving the bookg about the poor print quality and quickly reissue it.
I now repurchased this book as an ebook version. I downloaded it to my developer laptop and highly impressed on how much easier it is to read the screens. As LightSwitch is new to me, having the book opened on one tab browser while having another browser tab opened with LightSwitch makes it easy to follow and develop according to the steps in the book tutorials. I find this great as I can read and develop along at the same time following following step by step the tutorial. I must say the book is well written and the author presents every step clear and easy to understand. He goes into depth on the more difficult areas and covers a lot of information. The book has been very helpful and also a continual aid while I am programming.
Like I said the screens are excellent in this version and nothing but good things to say about the authors hard work in presenting LightSwitch. I have been developing for 20+ years and find this to be very helpful and informative. Highly recommend it...
