You are gonna be thrilled by that book 11 Aug 2014
By Michal - Published on
Format: Paperback
The unique character of recipes books is that you don't normally read them from start to end but rather pick things you need at a given moment and go with them only. With this in mind, I can say that I don't think there is any Web API based project or a Web API developer that would not find this book extremely useful. The wide array of recipes covers pretty much all (or at least most) of the common challenging scenarios you have to face when building a Web API application - whether it's routing, exception handling, testing or whatnot.

The author guides you really well through each of the recipes - giving you answers to not only how to implement a given functionality, but also going in-depth about how things work under the hood. this results in much better understanding of the Web API framework, which you can only benefit from in the long run.

More than just a recipe book 10 Aug 2014
By Jacob Reimers - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Written by one of the biggest experts on the WebAPI framework, this books provides a pragmatic overview of how to solve a wide range of tasks. Even though the book is not intended to provide an academic insight into topics like REST or client-server architecture, the author does provide solid context around the different 'recipes', so the reader can understand the 'why' and not just the 'how'.

The WebAPI framework is going to be the primary web development framework for .NET in the future and I would strongly recommend this book for both beginners and developers who already have exposure to ASP.NET, MVC or even WebAPI.

A great book for Web API developers 11 Aug 2014
By Timoty Weis - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book provides a wide range of solutions to typical problems that a developer encounters while working on a Web API project. Common issues as routing, security and authentication are covered in a proper way, allowing the identification of common patterns or scenarios that can be easily applied do real life situations. Moreover, the troubleshooting and testing sections are offering several interesting ideas that are worth trying.
The recipe style proposed fits the matter perfectly, allowing to focus the attention on specific Web API aspects and never becoming tedious or difficult to follow. This is most likely due to the deep knowledge that the author has on the topic, which allows him to tackle each problem with the best methodology providing also precise and pertinent information on the proposed solution.

Excellent ASP.NET Web API cook book! 22 Aug 2014
By Yuxing Huang - Published on
Format: Paperback
I bought the book from Apress directly. It is a clean and concise recipe book about ASP.NET Web API 2. The author provides very clear approaches of a great variety of problems. The book covers almost every aspect of ASP.NET Web API, from four hosting options to testing, from authorization to exception handling and troubleshooting, from configuration to various extension points of Web API. The author covers these topics with clear explanations and examples.

I have been following Filip's blog for a very long time. He is quite vocal in the ASP.NET community and his writing is fluent and coherent. This book is certainly a great addition to the Web API community.
