    Comments about oreilly SharePoint Apps with LightSwitch:

    Don't waste your money. You can Google most of the content that's in this book. You can also find more info at the Visual Studio LightSwitch Developers site. The title is misleading as it simply connects the LS application to a SharePoint site and doesn't actually teach you how to create a SharePoint hosted app.
