Steven St Jean just posted a review of Inside the Microsoft Build Engine: Using MSBuild and Team Foundation Build (Microsoft Press, 2009; ISBN: 9780735626287) on his blog. It joins the stellar reviews on Amazon.
Steven’s review is the most detailed yet. He has put a lot of work into the review, so please be sure to read it.
Here is Steven’s opening:
Quote for the Media 😉
“Wow! This is the book that I wish I had written. Sayed and William have covered the topic’s depth and breadth with enough illustrations and code examples to make any developer productive with MSBuild and Team Build. No Experience Required.”
And here’s his close:
While I may sound like a shill for the authors and publisher, I really do believe what I’ve written. In fact, I bring the book with me to most of my consulting engagements and recommend it to my clients. It’s useful when read from cover-to-cover or when used as a reference.
So go out and buy a bunch of copies and make Sayed and William the first technical authors to get rich off writing a book.
Steven, thanks very much! We’re glad you find the book so useful.
