You may have better luck getting more eyes on your question if you post this to the main XNA forums over at


More specificly this forum will be best:


I did a quick search and didn't see a forum specifically for the book you request.  This forum is mainly for the books I authored, but it may be one of my readers has also picked up the book you are referencing and has some insight.
