What is with Chapter 5?
It's missing download files (like SPListEventReceiver.zip), the code isn't very explanatory (on the REST project, when you add the service reference, the figure 5-23 shows HomeDataContext, but the code references TeamSiteDataContext), and even some of the variables are specific to a site and need to be changed to reflect your install (the myRestSvc.Products service proxy for my system turned out to be mySPContext.Products). In one way, it's helping me understand what's going on with the SharePoint implementation, but it's frustrating to spend 45 minutes typing in commands and then have the debugger keep slapping errors in front of you that are due to naming conventions. Since this is a beginners book, I think more effort needs to be made to help us understand where the code ties in with the tools and what to look for with user's system specifics.
P.S. - I did find the SPListEvent project - it's listed as AnnouncementListEvent. That's just sloppy.
