This book has code on a CD. I haven't got the book in printed form. Question: How useful would this book be to me in developing a custom conflict resolver for Merge replication in SQL Server 2008 R2, cost $3.75. The metods are discribed in the book.

I would say yes, the book is probably good for demonstrating how to utilize the API to build native COM resolvers. One benefit of COM-based resolvers is that they offer column level version information.With that said, the recommended approach is to build managed code assemblies by using the business logic handler framework.
