Book News Annotation:

Intended for web designers new to Blend, this guide introduces its tools and concepts for building graphical user interfaces, and shows how to enhance layouts and interactivity with animation, audio/video elements, and triggers. The last three chapters provide detailed instructions for building a banner ad with Silverlight 2, creating a video player, and browsing desktop images with Windows Presentation Foundation.
