I have not read it cover to cover, but I have used it to work through posting sensor data online (at ThingSpeak, not Pachube). It’s very much a ‘How To’ book, and great if you want to learn how to post sensor data online via HTTP. Obviously, the code is not exactly the same for FEZ boards, but it’s close enough to make the refactor fairly trivial. While you can find bits and pieces of the code scattered across the internet for free, it is brought together nicely in a few projects here.

Get it at Amazon, not Oreilly. http://www.amazon.com/Getting-Started-Internet-Things-Microcontrollers/dp/1449393578 . It is well worth $15 for the code samples alone.
