As context, I programmed in classic ASP and had experience with Java and VB.NET prior to purchasing this book, but I had not really worked with ASP.NET. I found this book an easy read, very clear, and broken up nicely to that I can use it as a reference. The examples are especially helpful, as they contain just enough context for each concept, but are not so specific that I have trouble translating them to match my own needs.

It is difficult to find one book that will tell you everything you need to know. I do believe this book makes an honorable attempt at showing you what you need to know to develop 2.0 websites. The book topics range from talking about how to use the new features within the ide to packaging and deploying your finished products. Get up to speed on master pages, validation, themes, membership and roles security, caching, etc. Although you won't necessarily become an overnight expert by reading this book it will certainly show you what you need to get up to speed on how to develop 2.0 websites professionally.

I bought this book before realizing that there was probably a newer edition "Professional ASP.NET 2.0 Special Edition" by the exact same authors released in Oct 2006 with 300 more pages. I haven't seen the new one, but I suspect it is this one in a newer release. Why this title hasn't been retired is a mystery, but I can't fault Amazon because it is still listed on the Wrox site as if it is a current book.

An addendum: Even the one above now has a newer edition: Professional ASP.NET 3.5 : in C# and VB

Provides a great reference to almost all classes, excellent for the beginner. One suggestion would have been to create an entire application - step by step at the end of each chapter as an exercies .

Don't say I did not warn you, this book is not for ASP.NET newbies. I'm fairly good with VB.NET and yet I simply can't use this book to learn ASP.Net. You will not even get past the first few pages.
Another thing I don't like about this book is that it dives into technical details without give you the whole picture about what is a proper ASP.Net website.After reading this book you would not have a concept in your mind about how to build an ASP.Net. It's just bits here and bits there.
