        Badly out of date.
        Hard to understand why this book is still offered. The content is really no longer of any use.

        Unlike the negative reviews below, this book works fine. Make sure to have the Netduino Plus 2 updated to the latest Firmware.
        Otherwise this book is good as well as accurate. I was able to build all projects using VS 2013 and the Micro Framework SDK no problem.

        In the future, I challenge the negative reviewer to give specific problems with the hardware.

          The book is straight forward. I really recommend to who want to be introduced to NetDuino World

          There are some compiler errors (not a big deal): The framework when the book was written was updated and you need to adapt the sample.

              It was not possible to do the first thing the book wants you to do - Download a particular free editor from Microsoft
