Free e-book by Charles Petzold

Check this out.

It's a book.

It's about programming Windows Phone using Silverlight and XNA.

It's by a hero of mine.

And it's a free download!

    There must be a secret API he uses.  I don't see any Texture2D.FromSteam() method that he references on page 799.  I didn't realise MS had a developer relationship with Valve's online service. 🙂

    Aside from me nit-picking about typos, it's a great book for anyone starting out on Windows Phone 7.
