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.
