Too bad he never finished it. March 16 2006
By Russ Painter - Published on
Format: Paperback
Peter seems to know what he's talking about. Unfortunately the book is FULL of mistakes. Peter codes in VB, and the C# translations that he provides were obviously not tested. They were copied and psted from the VB code and only half translated. They don't even come close to compiling. I would have hoped downloading the code from the wrox website would have provided the fixes, but unfortuntatly they rushed this one out, and didn't look back.

Wow! Jan. 26 2006

A month or so ago VS 2005 arrived. One of the new things is Web Parts. I looked, I scratched my head I played around with them a little bit, and really got no where. Some searching on the web and nothing that really helped at the usual ASP sites.

I have done the quick afternoon read on the book, and now am on chapter two as I work through the text in some detail. So far the book is excellent. No long winded code examples that float off in to nether land, this stuff is right to the point and easy to understand. Peter Vogel seems to make the very correct assumption that the readers of this book already know the language they use and the development tool they use. However, just as it says on the back cover, "Some experience with creating objects is helpful, but advanced skill as an object developer is not necessary", is right on. What this really means is that anybody writing any kind of website with ASP.Net can grasp this book. And everybody who is considering getting into webparts on their websites should get this book.

Poorly written March 23 2006
By W. Sellars - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Out of all the books I have, this is the most poorly written one. Terms are misused and mixed up in the later chapters (which I realized after further research of my own). No one example that progresses throughout the book. It's like he figured out how this works, did a quick off-the-wall example and through it in the book. In some cases, the information you used from a previous chapter will not work with a future chapter without making changes, if you would have used one example through out the book you would have realized this. I am also giving him one star b/c he felt that he needed to give himself 5, this will bring it down to more accurate rating.

A professionals review Jan. 21 2006
By Derek Comingore - Published on
Format: Paperback
Peter has done great at explaining the intricacies of ASP.Net 2 web parts. If you have not yet been exposed to ASP.Net 2 web parts...YOUR MISSING OUT! If you develop web applications, you will find that this book is your beginning to creating the next generation of webapps. Grab some coffee, pick up the book, and be prepared to be fascinated with this niche of the ASP.Net 2 platform!
Not the most helpfull book in the world June 29 2009

I've always been a little wary of Wrox books, and this is one that strengthens that opinion.

There's a few good tidbits in here, but you have to look hard.

If you can get it for really cheap in the bargain bin at half price books, it might be worth it.

But then again, asp 2.0 is yesterday's tech....
