I was very excited to find this book on the shelf. SOA Patterns with Biztalk Server 2009. Consuming and exposing WebServices(ASMX) and WCF was a bit tricky with the earlier versions of Biztalk, unless you wrote your own custom WS adapater [thanks to codeplex].
Going through the book I found most of the chapters covered WCF and Integration with Biztalk...thats a bit unimpressive when you can imagine the power of Integration with SOA Services..The Enterprise Service Bus Model was not covered in depth. Nonetheless its a good book to read off the shelf.
