I have order this book a little more then a month ago. The distance between the seller and my house is approximately 800miles or 1200KM. The deals with some obscure delivery service that actually take between 15 and 30 Business days and sometime in extreme case up to 45 days to deliver anywhere outside the US. They charge almost as much for the delivery as it would cost to send it through UPS. When I tried to mention to them that maybe they should get out of the 80s and into at least the 90s for delivery service and maybe even make a huge step and go with the US postal service who delivers anywhere in North America within a couple weeks, I got we are sorry you feel our delivery service are inadequate. But enough about best bargain book from New York. The book itself is great, thankfully a friend of mine has a copy and he let me borrow it.

If you are looking at programming or in classic ASP or if you need to reverse engineer some classic asp code then this book is great.

This text is so packed with information, it even goes beyond asp and introduces XML and COM+....so well written, so concise, publishers throughtout the country need to learn from wrox' writers on how to do technical books right! Every bit of code is explained in great detail, and while there are some errors, the website covers nearly all of them. Case in point: I won't be selling my copy back!

All programming books are both overwritten and underwritten.
When you begin reading and learning the content is simply too much. As you progress you find yourself seeking other resources for "filler" information.
I didn't realize until I grew frustrated with the book how effective it was. I had gone from a complete beginner to someone who could put together access driven web applications and I didn't even realize how far I had come.
I now have over 30 programming and database books that is use as resource guides for particular problems etc. Each book helps me get past a certain problem/hurdle. Like a lawyers library I couldn't proceed without it.
That is simply the nature of programming these days. We beginners often underestimate the amount of knowledge expert programmers have. The trick is to take what we can from each resource. In order to progress we must keep adding to the resource collection.
This book is the staple of my collection. I refer to it almost daily and as my knowledge base expands I find myself making better use of it.
So its a must for the beginner in my opinion. Whether you just want a foundation to take free script from ASP Programming sites, edit it, and add it to your projects or you are looking to chase a programming degree or career this book gets you rolling.

This book is a very good introduction to ASP. The codes are clearly explained step-by-step. The codes are also accompanied by screenshots of how they look on the browser. In addition, it covers almost all basic topics as well as a few advanced topics for more exeperienced programmer. Definitely a good buy.

In the beginning of Chapter 3, there is a paragraph that sums up the entire book:
"When I first started to study Chinese my tutor ... gave me a Chinese-English dictionary, a Chinese grammar book and a primer. But he placed all of these books in a basket and said they were not to used until the next week. In the first week he instructed me just to listen and and memorize some phrases. That week, I had to accept on faith the content, sentence structure, pronunciation and grammar. But by Friday I could at least walk into a Chinese restaurant, order a bowl of rice and pay for it."
That pretty well desribes how this book progresses. The authors start you off with some simple ASP and then build on that in the later chapters. I basically went chapter by chapter and did all of the "Try It Out" projects. By the end, I could understand ASP code and I was able to adapt it to the project I was working on.
The book is rather wordy, but not in a boring way. The authors' target audience is people with almost no programming experience, and I think they do a good job explaining things to that audience. I had done some web coding before, so I usually skimmed the text to look for the techniques I was not familar with. As I worked on my real-world project, I would refer back to the book when I wasn't sure how to do something.
I like the book because it has lots of hands on examples, right up to a full blown web application called "Wrox Classifieds". It's easy to look up a specific ASP technique and get right to the explanation of how it works and how to code it. An added benefit are the Appendices, which include a complete description of the ASP 3.0 and ADO 2.5 Object Models and a VBScript reference.

I was really looking for a book that gave me a good introduction to ASP and ADO and i just stumbled on this book. It was great from the very first chapter! They have a tremendous flow and do not assume stuff. Their explanations on Object oriented programming is very fresh. Throughout the book if you carefully test the code, you learn alot about creating flexible ASP web pages with full MSDE connectivity. Of course it helps if you already do some programming indeed on the cover they have the words 'programmer to programmer'. Too bad ASP 3.0 has now been superceeded but i think if you really want to understand the current you must visit the past!
