If you've learned a little C# and ASP.NET then I can think of no quicker way of learning how to use them than working through this book.
The book has only about 500 pages but it moves very swiftly and contains a huge amount of information. It covers the creation of a complete web site containing many commonly used modules such as news, forums, mailing lists, and polls. The entire web site source code can be downloaded from and is indeed needed as the book sometimes skips over the more mundane bits. To get the best from it you should have a working knowledge of C# and ASP.NET and have a few related reference books on hand. I have got most from this book while creating a new website based on their code.
My own area of interest is more in client-server applications than in web sites but what I immediately liked about the book was the data access base classes they created simply that could be used for any client-server system. They also show the implementation of error handling onto the asp page base class that provides for easy yet robust error handling on all served pages. They show the extension of ASP.NET authentication to provide your own tiers of user-based security. They cover the use of many of the basic ASP.NET controls and provide a level of coverage which I was unable to get from the Microsoft documentation. They cover the design and implementation of a database using SQL Server. All in all there a lot here of interest to anyone creating any type of database application.
Wrox are obviously making an effort to get their example code right, something they have too often failed to do in the past. This website works. I was able to get it up and running within 20 minutes.
In summary I guess you could say I am seriously impressed. Well done Wrox.

I think that the first observation about this book is that it is not what I consider a normal Wrox book, in fact few books I've read both present and structure the content in the same consistent way that each chapter of this book does, making this the most useful book I've read in a long time. This title is totally "hands on" and far more practical than many that are more theory based. The author suggests that you download the code and "get in there" coding as you read the chapters; which is what I did.
The approach of taking an example site from conception to deployment may not please all readers as the level of detail may be too much for them (stored procedures and table design). However, if you are looking to buy this book to help you build a real-world, community based ASP site that requires administration, security and advertising to name just a few areas then this book can almost be followed word-for-word to achieve your goal. If the book does go into too much detail for you at the point of reading, then hold on to it because I'm sure it will become a vital reference book at some time in the future.
The nice thing about the structure of the book that makes it an easy and enjoyable read, other than the plainly written English, is the consistent approach to each chapter. The front of the book states that every chapter works around the three main issues we come up against time and again in development; Problem, Design and Solution. The Design sections lists the features required to solve the "problem in hand", then each of the sites physical layers are designed based on implementing these features using the correct technology as we move towards coding the Solution.
A good foundation is always built upon when solving a defined problem.

I was looking for a book to get into ASP.Net development with C# and my primary goal was to fully utilize the features of .Net environment so that I could write reusable and easily updateable code with the least amount of hassle if there are changes later on in the process. MSDN is great, but it is not always the best way to learn how things are put together in a synthetic whole and how things work in practice. I can't tell you how glad I am to have chanced upon this one:
1) The concepts are crystal clear (which is an indication of how clear the concepts are in the authors' minds). They do an excellent job in giving a solid foundation about the general design considerations in few pages. The time one would save if one read the general discussion alone would be worth the book's price.
2) Authors omit any obvious explanations (which made the book size very reasonable for such great content), yet don't fail to mention any crucial implementation decision along with the underlying rationale.
3) The code is very clean. (You would not believe how much bad code is out there in programming books.)
4) They formulate their sentences with great care. The language, far from being an obstacle, actually becomes a great tool in understanding more difficult topics.
5) Provides a very useful context for msdn help so that when you read a particular topic, you know how to use it once you learn it.
If you are a veteran programming book reader, you would know how costly (both $wise and even more importantly, in terms of wasted time and unnecessary frustration) badly written books can be. This book deserves a full rating for both its great content and clear presentation. I hope this sets the standard for all programming books!
