I am tired of reading introductions to XAML; I hate 'paper' wasted on repeating every little piece of code in VB.NET as well as C#; I've been around and pick things up very quickly and easily; I have one or two working WPF applications.
 
If I'm going to be stuck on a desert island with just a laptop and some PDF books, and need to code a basic prototype of a simple Silverlight based collaboration tool, what Silverlight books should I take?

While I'd love to recommend my good mate Laurent Bugnion's book, he didn't produce one for SL 3. I would have to recommend Essential Silverlight 3[^] and Pro Silverlight 3[^].

I second Pete's suggestion of the second book that he suggested. Though I have not actually purchased it, I have skimmed through it at the local Barnes & Noble, and it is definitely on my to-buy list Big Grin | :-D
