5.0 out of 5 stars A scarce resource! Much better editing than the IIS 7 edition! 19 Mar 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is information that is hard to find. There are only two books available for IIS 7 development that I would even look at. The prior edition of this book is one of them, but the editing and code examples made it clear that the book was a piece-meal effort.

The IIS 8 edition is far more cohesive, well written and absolutely up to date!

If you are administering IIS, this will be helpful. If you are extending IIS manager or the schemas of IIS configuration, this book is indispensible.

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing comprehensive read 30 Dec 2012
By Aaron Martone - Published on
If I had to admit something about myself, it is that I don't find books to be an effective method of teaching for me, as that they are often written in such a way that I don't ever reach that 'Eureka' moment of comprehension and actually LEARN something about the subject matter. But I was determined to both learn and understand IIS on a more core level than I was at.

Simply put; this book is a a godsend! The authors write in a very structured and easy-to-consume manner that takes you step by step through concepts that are foundations to later chapters. This fills in the blanks I had for the HOW and allowed me to apply that learned logic to other areas of IIS quite successfully. The book is very thorough and delves into many areas that I have particular interest in (and previously, was lacking comprehension in). The examples given reiterate the subject matter and are thorough and easily understood, which aided the learning process.

I have a newfound sense of pride having already shown up many others who merely spoke a good game about IIS, but could never back up those words. I really wish all books were written this way. Not being anywhere near an 'avid' reader, I was surprised to find myself reading 8-9 chapters a day, but I honestly found the writing style to be very organized for both in-depth reading and quick scanning. A fantastic book, well worth the investment!

I had the previous book on IIS 7.0 and didn't like it much but felt this one was much better written. Easy to read and lots of good info.
