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.
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.
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.
