Jon Flanders has been a thought leader in the area of doing REST in .NET. His new RESTful .NET book is now available for purchase. He goes into the motivation and background for REST and then shows how to consume and expose RESTful web services with WCF 3.5. Very few people can make low-level technical details as accessible as Jon. Definitely one to have in the library.
