From the reviews of the second edition:
"This book reports on the CSLA framework and comprises 12 chapters, which I think are well organized and easy to follow for the average .NET programmer … . I enjoyed evaluating this book, and I definitely recommend it to programmers who develop typical business applications and wish to take the .NET framework a step further. I also think that it is valuable resource as a textbook for information technology students … ." (Rafael Corchuelo, ACM Computing Reviews, Vol. 49 (3), March, 2008)

Rocky has created the CSLA development framework that has existed since Visual Basic 5.0 days - I've been using it that long too.
The book works in 2 ways - you can learn how the framework is built and the technologies behind it, or you can jump straight in and use it to build solutions. CSLA enables you to concentrate on the business issues rather than fretting about the underlying technology (ADO.Net, remoting, WCF, Enterprise services and so on), unless you want to of course.
With support forums, an active community, and on-going development there is a wealth of learning material and support here for this book.

I'm on page 113 and I probably won't finish reading this book. Instead of a methodology for the creation of business objects, including creating a business object interface structure, hints on how to reuse as much code as possible within a business object hierarchy while allowing to remain flexible and extensible, and pointers on how to effectively retrieve and store data, I basically got a 600-page long book on how to use a class library that someone else has already created, called CSLA.NET.
Don't get me wrong, the author is obviously highly skilled, and I saw some interesting things in this book, but I want to write my own code - I just needed some help learning how to code business objects like an "expert" and this book isn't fitting the bill like I'd hoped.
