If you are familiar with the C# language but are new to web development using ASP.Net MVC and want to learn how to create production quality web applications then this is the book to get. So many books give an overview of a technology using wizards and templates that is sufficient only for creating demo apps. This book shows you how to structure MVC apps correctly from the very beginning, and shows you how the tools that you need to create real applications (dependency injection using Ninject, unit testing using the Visual Studio tools and mocking with Moq) fit with the MVC framework. You may prefer other tools in particular (such as Unity rather than Ninject), but that is not the point – it is how they fit together with ASP MVC that is the key concept.

The book is well structured and very thorough tutorial. Some people may find the pace a little slow, but to my mind that is better than essential concepts being skimmed over. If you are hoping to learn how to knock up a quick and dirty web site then not only would this book not be appropriate but also you would probably be better off opting for a different web technology altogether. ASP.Net MVC aims to solves problems inherent in large scale web applications, and this book shows you how to use the framework correctly.

I loved this book! I am an experienced C# developer but have never written any ASP.NET applications. The book was pitched just right for me personally, because he introduces and explains all ASP.NET MVC concepts clearly and lucidly. He takes nothing for granted and explains everything in-depth. It is a tutorial-style book, where you really have to follow along by actually coding along with him. In contrast to a lot of similar books, I have found no mistakes or omissions! That's a credit to the author for working hard at making sure the examples worked as stated in the book.
Some readers might find the style irritating, perhaps because they're already experiencd ASP.NET developers, or maybe because they want to skip the Ninject sections, or avoid unit testing etc. But I highly recommend the use of both - after all, as the author explains thoroughly, dependency injection and unit testing are two of the main benefits of the MVC approach, so although they are optional, they're very important.
I think there is a general level of excellence in his writing, clear descriptions, and right pacing. I can highly recommend this book for experienced C# developers who are novice ASP.NET programmers.

Covers everything I wanted it to except authentication and security. The author mentions that you can go to a web page and download a chapter from a future book to help, as he believes it should have been included in this one. However it is still not available. Bit unfortunate. Otherwise a great reference book.

Quite possibly the worst programming guide about a specific system I have ever read. The content is less about MVC 5 and more about "this is how *I* like to program and I will prove how clever I am by giving endless examples of my genius". Basically what we end up here is a book that one third dedicated to the actual plumbing of MVC 5 and the rest on how the author prefers to program with an odious dose of arrogance.

Too many areas are touched outside of the scope of MVC and because of this you don't get any detail about any of them and you are left with a rather vague understanding of how MVC works and the other bits and pieces that are introduced (e.g. Ninject).

No I wouldn't buy this book at all - it is simply too confusing and jumps about all over the place. Plus the "real world" example of an application is anything but real world - since when did you use a single table to define an object that has many fields under different contexts (e.g. you wouldn't use a Categories text field duplicated many times in the same table)?

Not recommended, would advise you look elsewhere.

I have bought several Adam Freeman books including MVC, jQuery and AngularJS and they are all excellent. Adam writes good English explaining concepts lucidly and with the right mix of examples and reaffirmation. He is a pragmatist which all commercial developers need to be so doesn't force design patterns but uses them sensibly.

The style of writing suits me. I found it easy to read and understand. It could be because I already have commercial experience developing MVC applications. I have not tried any of the code samples, just had a quick read. It covers the subject comprehensively and I highly recommend it.
