Coming to the ASP.Net arena with 3 years ASP and 6 years HTML experience, I chose this book to start again at the beginning of the learning curve so that I didn't miss anything. This book's learning curve is very gradual and the author does a fantastic job of explaining the various components of the technology.
The book is supplied with a CD-ROM containing the ASP.Net Framework, the code examples from the book, and an ASP.Net editor - "MS ASP.Net Web Matrix".
Obviously, as with most other people with experience, I have my own set of programming tools, and chose not to use the supplied editor in favour of my own.
Unfortunately as the book progresses, use of the "Web Matrix" software becomes absolutely essential, as the examples of the underlying code are ignored in favour of the code wizards within the software. I originally hoped I would be able to bypass the Wizard instructions and simple type the code into my own editing software.
I imagine most people with a similar background to me would usually prefer to see the ASP code rather than step-by-step wizard instructions. This ~can~ be viewed using the Web Matrix, however, it's pretty complex and isn't easy to figure out by yourself.
If the author could rewrite this book, but forget about the "Web Matrix" in favour of detailed coding plus examples, it would be one of the best publications available. The book begins in this ideal style, but soon migrates to the Wizard approach instead.
How are you supposed to understand the principles and any errors or functionality queries when the wizard is all you know about?!?
Perhaps the book should have been called, "Sams Teach Yourself The ASP.NET Web Matrix Coding Wizards in 24 Hours"

I needed a book that would get me up to speed quickly with asp.net and visual basic.net. Having come from an ASP 3 background and vbscript I found other offerings assumed a good level of visual basic knowledge, which I didn't have.
This book serves the purpose well, allowing you to then focus on more involved aspects of VB.net and ASP.net.

This is the perfect book for getting started in a weekend, and is ideal for the complete novice to asp.net.
Being an experienced asp and vb developer, this book helped me to make the transition to asp.net (which is quite different from previous versions). Admittedly there were a few chapters on general programming basics eg 'an introduction to databases' which anyone who has programmed before would skip. But no harm, it just means that it will probably take a non-beginner half the time to fly through this book, a very encouraging way to start.
To respond to a previous reviewers comments: about too much dependency on matrix. Yes it does depend on it completely. You just have to go with it. But since Matrix is purely a substantially trimmed-down version of vb.studio.net, learning it this way is not wasted.
An excellent follow on from this book is ASP.Net Unleashed by Stephen Walther.

Too much emphasis on the Web Matrix application which is provided with the CD. If you are using Visual Studio.net, don't buy this book!

I have used HTML for a while now, but wanted to take the "next step" in producing dynamic web pages, and have used this series of books before. I really like the no-jargon approach of this author, who eases you into the subject pretty well. I had a clients SQL product database up and running online within two weeks. [Although don’t tell them I simply purchased a book on it for about twenty pounds]. I would recommend this book to other developers, who have good existing HTML skills.

This book is great. It teaches you a step-by-step approch to learning to program in ASP.NET, covering forms, controls, ADO.NET and more complicated controls such as Datagrid display and formatting.
The only shortfall is that it does not use MS Visual Studio.NET and MS SQL. However, if you know how to use any or both MS technologies ( like I do ), then this is the best book to start your ASP.NET
Although, VB.NET is used as the programming language, something that I am not familiar with, I used C#.NET with no problem.
