This book contains a small amount of information on ASP, concealed among hundreds of pages of patronising waffle. For example, it explains that it is possible to assign a value to a variable and then assign a different value to it, as if this is surprising, Maybe this is appropriate for someone who has never done any programming before; but I would not recommend a newcomer to programming to start with ASP.
For example, it tells you how to open a record set with the line "objRec.Open "Contact", objConn, 0, 1, 2" Then it explains, at length, why it is a good idea to use pre-defined constants instead of numbers like 0,1,2, and tells you what the pre-defined constants are; but it omits to say what their values are, so you have to use guesswork to replace this line by one that actually uses the pre-defined constants. This is typical of its style.
If the editors would delete all the advice directed at people who have never programmed before, this book would become a small fraction of its 650 pages, and far more usable.
