Reviews

From the reviews of the fourth edition:

 

“The book really starts from the very beginning of WPF and explains the general ideas in an understanding way. … every chapter can be read independently and the book can be used as a source of quick advice. Furthermore, the examples of the book are really written in a nice way … .” (Vitosh Kolev Doynov, Amzon.com, February, 2014)
