If you're in the same boat as me, be sure you know something about programming before you buy this book. If you don't, you'll likely be confused by lines like "The system namespace provides a set of fundamental classes (including methods, properties, and events) that yields base-level services for .NET." Huh? What's a base-level service? And what are classes? I didn't know the techy lingo, so I found it impossible to get a foothold anywhere in the book. And I only read the intro pages...I can only imagine how lost I'd be in the later chapters.
Bottom line: this book isn't for you if you have no coding background.
I have a background in programming including some web development 4 years ago (prior to .net). Yet I found the book very informative and am thankful I got over my 'a dummy book is not for me' attitude. For example, the author did a history of COM, DCOM, COM+ in nutshell that really helped explain the problems web services solved.
The book goes into web services development in enough detail to get you started coding. For serious development you would want a more detailed reference but this is a great starting point.
The author has demonstrated an excellent grasp of the web development landscape and put it all together in a cohesive fashion. If you want to find out what the .net furor is all about I highly recommend this author.
Kudos to the author. I highly recommend this book for .NET overview and intro to web services. It will even have you constructing, debugging and deploying them in no time.
