Petzold strikes again!

(Or, rather, struck again last summer.)  I just found Jeff’s post about receiving a book from Petzold complete with witty comments.  I was also a lucky recipient of an autographed book, so I thought I’d share what Petzold had to say to me:

No color, alas, but plenty of depth!

Funny stuff!  (He’s referring to this discussion, in case you missed it.)  I haven’t had a chance to read the book, but it looks really good.  To say “thank you,” I’ve been meaning to send him a signed copy of Silverlight 1.0 Unleashed, but I haven’t been able to come up with something witty enough to say.  “No third dimension, alas, but plenty of color?”

    What a coincidence that i ought both WPF unleased and 3 D programming for windows the same day.

    and both are awesome

    "No third dimension, alas, but plenty of color"

    or simply

    "No third dimension, but shiny"

    Man, I really hope that his 3d book has plenty of "depth" since the one on WPF is just taking lots of space on my shelf…

    Your WPF book is an absolute delight to read. Please consider writing another knockout on Silverlight 2.0 . We can petition your wife if you want to !

    How about this? "It’s about the user experience"
