ASP.NET 2.0 - Revealed by Patrick Lorenz is a nice book and one of its kind in revealing the new features of ASP.NET 2.0. The author has clearly defined the coverage of the book and explained all new features of ASP.NET 2.0. In the initial chapters, short and crisp details on enhancements in VS 2005 and VB.NET language are also useful to anyone, even though it is not the subject of the title.

The samples and walk-throughs on data controls and datasource objects are sufficient enough for a ASP.NET developer to kick-start into developing data-based websites.

In the chapters describing Master pages and Applying Themes, the examples are really simple and the author has smoothly passed upon these new concepts of Whidbey in an elegant manner.

Managing Users and Roles chapter describes the membership and role management with lots of example and procedures. Personalization and use of Web Parts are as simple, and clear as other chapters and author has taken a note on every aspect of the technical issues that comes along in Web Development.

Last but not the least to mention the chapters dealing with configuration and Chapter 11 on new enhancements in Page Framework and Cool New Controls. Here again, the new controls and changes have been discussed simply, but not so enough. My feeling is that, the author could have put more emphasis and elaboration on this chapter.

Fun Pet Tricks deals with a lot of real-time issues and solved examples are useful ones for any web developer.

To say it conclusively, one could go for this book for handy, quick reference for web development in ASP.NET 2.0.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great explanation of Whidbey concepts w/lots of code! 3 Dec. 2003

ASP.NET 2.0 Revealed
By Patrick Lorenz
Published by APress
This book is much more demonstrative and visual than some of the other titles currently on the market, making it the ultimate complement for books like "A First Look at ASP.NET v 2.0". Overall, the book's tone is very educational but not intimidating, complex but not complicated, making for a very friendly atmosphere that makes it quite easy to read.

The book tackles some of the more technical topics involved with developing and administering ASP.NET web sites, so it's an effective tool in lightly previewing what's coming on the horizon for us, as well as giving you the in-depth answers to allow you to start planning to solve problems and work more efficiently.

In each of the title's 13 hearty chapters, there's great examples that accompany most, if not all of the concepts presented. So, you don't get an empty, lost feeling after being drawn-into an idea - it's succeeded with a relevant, working C# example.

The book is definitely written for the web developer already primed with experience in ASP.NET 1.x, so familiarity with the concepts of Microsoft web development is a must. But assuming that, you'll be very pleased.

Specifically, there are several areas in this book I found to be outstanding. These include a fantastic introduction to generics, iterators, anonymous methods and other new features of both C# and Visual Basic .NET. Also, there's a great description of using the ObjectDataSource control for binding business objects to data controls, and an equally nice discussion of the Site Counter API and keeping tabs on the user currently on one's site. The book also has a good chunk of information about the improvements to working with dynamic imaging, and about the easy by which you can create and control client-side script.

Additionally, there's a great preview of the Whidbey version of Visual Studio .NET's features specifically for web developers. Provides constant tips and comments about what features are likely to be changed by the Whidbey Beta.

The sole bit of criticism I would have it that, the chapter on Web Parts chapter was interesting, but largely took from the documentation and samples you can find on MSDN and in the .NET Framework documentation.

But outside of that, the positive far outweigh the negatives, and if you're on the hunt for anything and everything you can get your hands on about the next big thing in web development, get your hands on this book today.
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent ASP.NET V2 overview! 6 Nov. 2003
By A Customer - Published on
ASP.NET v2 brings a lot of new stuff to the table and this book gives an excellent first overview about the topic. What I like most about it is the programmer's perspective (with lots of code examples) rather than a purely 'academic' text. It really answers the what's-in-it-for-me question. Also, the author's style is quite relaxed and easy and that makes it easy to read. I very much enjoyed it!!
