This is an easy title to review as it's the only book on this topic. So if you want a book on the Sync Framework then this is it. In case you have missed it the Sync Framework is Microsoft's approach to achieving synchronisation of data stored on a range of devices with a range of connectivity possibilities. You can use it to sync mobile devices and build collaboration applications. This book does a good job of explaining the theory and it has lots of examples. It covers the use of the Sync Framework API V1 and Sync Services for ADO.NET V2. It is worth noting that Sync Framework V2 is available as in CTP (Community Technology Preview) and should be available before the end of the year.
