I got the Kindle version, I hope it was not a mistake in digitizing the book, but for now I've returned it.
Now since this is book is about Universal apps I was expecting more on how to share and re-use code (at least one chapter). Nope nothing major or an example project... Strange. Now the author did call out that MVVM was not used in the book but I think at this stage in the game the code should revolve around MVVM. But again the author did call it out on the description so cant say I was not warn.
Anyway in my opinion try to stay away from this book. There are better books or material on the internet that really brings something to the table.
