Keith covers a wide range of topics in this book. Unfortunately, the discussion is shallow, and you will find yourself seeking additional resources for all of the topics covered in the book. If you are looking for a high level overview of the technologies involved because you are new to web services, this book is for you. But if you are looking to fully understand the architectural and implementation details for the core web services technologies, be prepared to buy some more books.

First things, Keith Ballinger is extremely knowledgable when it comes to .NET web services. This book contains a lot of valuable information about designing and building web services using the .NET framework. So why only 3 stars?
This book was published in 2003 (some specs from April 2003 are mentioned to confirm that), but it reads more like a 2001-2002 book. I was really looking for some information about how and when to use WSE instead of standard ASMX. Unlike most ... books I own, this book really needed more technical editing and some better graphics (check out figure 3.3 for a chuckle). Lastly, the website for this book contains no useful information and is often unavailable. I expected more from ... Keith Ballinger.

Having already read another book on Web Services, most of this was not new. However, that does not mean that I found the book to be a redundant addition to my collection. The author does an excellent job of drilling down to the core technologies, XML, SOAP, WSDL, and offers ground level explanations of the technology as well as how they contribute to Web Services.
This is an Architecture and Implementation book not an Applied book, so don't expect detailed practical examples, that give you the details of a new widget to use in your next project. The examples provide a good look at the nuts and bolts of the various aspects that the author covers, but that's about all. The author does a good job of providing a comprehensive view of the technology. About the only thing I can say bad about the book is that the white cover gets dirty way too fast.

Too many books talk about web services and spend more time on hype and nonsense then showing you how to build and use them. This book however, does not have that shortcoming.
The thing about this book that is so compelling is that you really get into building web services and consuming them, and its done in a way that is very practical and useful.
There's the standard explanation of the things, but he never gets all into the hype at the expense of content.
I think it's geared toward people with a basic understanding of web services, but even if you don't have that, if you walk through his examples, you'll get there quickly.
I will definitely buy anything else that he puts out. He's a great writer and communicator.

This is the best book I have read on Web Services using .NET
This is definitely for those who are at begineer to intermediate stage. The languages is simple, the examples are concise and to the point. There are so many features in .NET it would be literally impossible to conver in one Book. But this book does the best at doing just that.
I have just completed a project using web services and now after reading this book, I have few ideas to go back and improve the service right from designing to performance. Can't ask more from reading a book :-).

This book is a must have if your are just getting you feet wet with .NET Web Services. It also provides great insight into interop and the direction of Web Services and the technology that makes it possible. The authors insight is helpful in navigating the domain and helps with insightful suggestions on how to avoid some of the pitfalls of implementing Web Services.
