HASH(0xa5c042d0) out of 5 stars Great book , gives background info. Feb. 24 2006
By Drewes J. Kooi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a great book about asp.net 2.0, IIS and security. It provides a lot of background info, once you have that the other pieces of asp.net fall into place and things make a lot more sense. I think for code examples I can always use Google, background info on how it all works together is what you read a book for and this book delivers. I hope this will not be the author's last book.

HASH(0xa5d655e8) out of 5 stars Great book July 10 2006
By Allen Z. Deng - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is one of the best technical books I've ever read. It gives us detailed information of how ASP.NET 2.0 works behind the scene.

If you are simply looking for a book teaching you how to use Role Management, Membership and other cool features offered by ASP.NET 2.0, this book might not be a good fit for you because it tends to explain lots of background info before jumping into the new features. However if what you want is to understand how all these puzzles interact with each other in the ASP.NET security world, this book should be your first choice.

HASH(0xa5b17c0c) out of 5 stars It's about how things work under the covers Nov. 26 2007
By T. Haynes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I bought this book for help with over-riding the membership providers and possible the profile providers. What I got was a full on introduction to how things really work under the covers. Didn't really help me with my original intention, but certainly improved my understanding of security in ASP.Net 2.0.
HASH(0xa5daea08) out of 5 stars Thorough, excellent writing Feb. 15 2008
By D. Norton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book because I needed the information for a project that I am currently engaged in. The information contained within was immediately relevant in shaping the solution design. It gave me the how and the why to architect a solid, yet flexible solution.

This text is not a how-to for a beginner. It is also not light reading. It is a dense book; lots of information crammed into it. You have to bring your experience to this book for the full weight of the teaching to come to bear. I highly recommend it to application architects and development team leads.

By Derek Comingore - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
My peers,

This book provides the reader with material that only an individual who works on the Microsoft ASP.Net team can supply. Stefan does a marvelous job at giving the reader insight into the "plumbing" of the ASP.Net runtime. In addition, the manual contains excellent coverage of the new ASP.Net 2 membership and role management services! If you are an ASP.Net professional who wishes to gain a deeper understanding of the product outside of how to write code against it, pick it up!
