This book is for beginners and for ASP.NET professionals who are tackling some new features of ASP.NET 3.5. And for this reason it is a good book to read. It's clear, there are lots of code examples for real world problems and the writer makes significant effort to explain the code in steps. It tackles VB coding and logic that does make sense in a way that other enormous ASP tomes cannot.

I would recommend this book to anyone needing to start a VB web application. Mr Cox (the author) tells his story with the odd comic reference which lightens a typically heavy subject.

I think the main problem with this book is that it has been published under the "for dummies" publisher. If it were published by Wrox or Apres then I am sure the previous reviewer would think again.

Unlike it's PHP equivalent, this book disappointed me. It based itself completely on the Viusal Porgramming elements and contained little in the way of example code. Ok for absolute beginners who want to get something simple done and never look at asp again, but not for anyone who needs to code a specific solution. Even beginners will outgrow this book quicker than its counterparts.
