There shouldn't be any reason that VWD 2K8 would not work for you; it is essentially VWD 2K5 with the added support for LINQ and such.
The only thing to be aware of is if you use SQL Server 2008. I am not familiar with this particular book but if the Author uses a connection string similar to the following:
Data Source=.\SQLExpress;Integrated Security=true; AttachDbFilename=|DataDirectory|\mydb.mdf;User Instance=true;
This will fail in SQL 2K8 because of the User Instance flag at the end. You will need to remove this flag to make the connection string work.
