What I found useful about the book is the approach. They featured a solution and walk readers through the architectural steps of a real world project. Then they match those structures to the features and technologies within CRM. I found it to be a light read which helps to introduce some of the new features of Dynamics CRM 2011.
For those of you looking for a project oriented approach, this book is very illustrative of how to walk through a CRM engagement. Complete with coding samples for client and server side code this is a great reference for developers.
Good Job Jim and Darren!
