4.0 out of 5 stars A scouser's guide to taking the bus. So valuable., 14 Dec. 2011
A large proportion of Britain's population are now so used to travelling by car that they have become scared of buses. This regional handbook encourages use of public transport in the Northwest of England, by providing elementary instruction. In Scouse.

This "us'n de bus" guide sets out the most basic information possible. The guide begins reassuringly with: "us'n de bus could not be easier."

It goes on to warn that passengers should "first o' all decide ed wa' bus yous need, and once de rite bus 'as beun spotted, wi' de noomber and desdinateon ed de front, one should dun "signal fe de driver ter stop."

Helpfully the guide continues: "weit until de bus is stopped and de dewrs ay fully opened and step ed board."

"whun yous wanna gerrof, press de bell once. fe yer safety we recommend yous remain seated until de bus 'as arrived reight at de stop."

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic. Clear, concise and SO helpful., 19 May 2009
Sanderson manages to cook up a feast from the acryonm soup. MVC looks to be THE big thing in the Microsoft development world, and I'm really glad to have found this guide.

Lots of the big brand publishers just commission people to fill in the gaps in their product range and I suspect the big names are just added as glorified editors to give credibility to the underlings. In contrast, Sanderson writes with product experience (which is very rare in these early days of MVC) and the fact that it is his first book show he is not writing to order - he really knows his stuff and cares about communicating it. His blog and the online resources back this up.

You are not buying a printed version of rehashed documentation, you are buying a well written technical book. Oh so rare and very valuable.

Highly recommended if you're even thinking about moving to the next generation of MS development.
