Having explored moving a .NET 2.0 Webforms project to 4.5 – this introduced a lot of the really useful more recent .NET additions (NuGet, URL Routing, Ninject, Handlers etc.), while most importantly sticking to Webforms and not transitioning to MVC. The additional exploration of utilising an MVP pattern in webforms I found particularly fascinating.
The author's tips and methodology concerning the structuring and organisation of a webforms project I found unusually effective, for so simple an approach. Often made me wish my project had been handled with such thought from the beginning.
Excellent, enormously useful book – especially for those with legacy webforms projects that want to keep up-to-date, but not restart with MVC.

The worst thing about the book in my opinion is Author's unabashed disdain for ASP.NET WEB-FORMS and web server controls (in a book that's supposed to be about web-forms). He drones on and on about how much MVC is better than WEB-FORMS, like experienced pro developers don't already know the difference. Web-Forms event driven architecture uniquely suits my current application development needs, and when I'm developing an application suited to the MVC paradigm, I'll simply dust up my MVC books. So, if you're a pro developer, stick with the ASP PRO published by WROX (they really rock!) and avoid this book or any books for beginners. They are not worth the trouble.
I bought this book after using this e-book version and read it on my 23 inches computer screen. The book has almost all the information that you may need to know about ASP.NET 4.5. The reason I gave the feedback is because of the way the publisher typed the texts. The texts look exactly as what you would see in a manual that came with an item. There's no spaces at all between the lines, and the most of the paragraphs are huge. I thought it was because the author was trying to cover everything in fewer pages, but after I bought 2 other books from the same publishers, I notice all of them are the same, even a smaller Web API book with less than 100 pages.
