This book is packed full of examples. If you can't find what you need in this book, you won't find it. The book covers all the basics like LINQ to Objects, LINQ to SQL, LINQ to Entities, LINQ to DataSet, and LINQ to XML.
It then goes beyond that and covers Expression Trees, Parallelism, Multitier Solutions, and Data Binding.
My favorite part of the book is the coverage of expression trees. They did a great job of covering them in great detail.
The best part about all the code samples in the book is that they are available for download in a very organized and usable download.
I have been dragging this book around in my backpack for months. If you are doing anything with LINQ, this book is one you want by your side. I highly recommend it.
It doesn't put on kid gloves, though, so if you are new to LINQ you might start with the Magennis book and develop some comfort with LINQ to Objects first, just to have a foothold to work from, which will increase your comfort with the implementation facets that support LINQ, such as extension classes, generic classes, object initializers, and anonymous types.
I initially tried to jump right into the N-Tier chapters, which is what I wanted to learn, but found that I needed to go through the earlier chapters that lay the groundwork of understanding for the later more complex chapters.
I would recommend this to a new learner of the LINQ to SQL and LINQ to Entities topics.
