Finally there is a book dedicated to the design of AJAX applications, too many books cover this subject with not real though in to the design and architecture of the solutions. Dino has managed to cover this very important subject in a clear and insightful manner. This book is full of clear examples of how to achieve a rich user experience as well as why, without compromising the robustness of the final solution. The approach is both pragmatic and understandable, providing clear guidance for the experienced developer. This is not an introduction to or AJAX, rather a guide to best practices when using these great technologies together. By taking the reader back to first principles around how the scripting engine works and interacts with external services, this book provides a clear insight into the inner workings without becoming bogged down in technical intricacies.
The book is littered with numerous examples of design patterns that help to resolve a number of potential issues along with clear guidance on how to analyse issue to ensure the right pattern can be chosen. The last chapter of this book is dedicated to Rich Internet Applications using Silverlight, which is quite fitting as a number of the architectural issues facing Silverlight developers are the same as those facing AJAX developers and the majority of solutions described in this book can be applied to Silverlight apps just as easily as AJAX ones.
This book can be read in conjunction with, Microsoft® .NET: Architecting Applications for the Enterprise (PRO-Developer), which provides a more detailed dialog on key design principles and how to apply these in the .net world.

I bought this book after using several methods to include Ajax in .NET web projects and still not being sure "whats best". Put simply this book told me exactly what I needed to know, at the level I required. Its not a download examples book, it just clearly explains in a straight forward way "probably to experienced .NET developers" the pro's and con's of several routes to Ajax functionality. I would recommend this book to any developer looking for an in depth look at how the technology "actually" works. Along with Microsoft.NET: Architecting Applications for the Enterprise from the same author, it helped make the jump to designing an Ajax application from the ground up, with confidence.
