Book Image

Not very long ago, Wrox published a neat little book called ASP.NET 2.0 MVP Hacks and Tips.  This is a book written by Microsoft MVPs that takes you beyond the MSDN docs, beyond the reference books, and beyond what you get out of the box with ASP.NET 2.0, although there is a ton of great stuff in the box, in the books, and in the docs.  The goal of the book is, as one reviewer put it, "[expand] your horizons, enabling you to not only see those horizons, but realize then, how to get past them."

Another thing I like about this book (and no, it's not that I contributed to it) is that it is smallish, as computer books go, and yet packs a big punch.  This is the kind of book that I like to read because there isn't a lot of fluff, and it doesn't repeat what you can find in the docs; it just gets down to learning from other people's experience.  If you're an experienced ASP.NET developer, this is a great book to pick up to compliment your own experience and learning.  So pick it up, give it a read, and then let us know what you think by blogging, commenting here, or publishing a review on Amazon and elsewhere.

I like how the 'search inside' arrow is pointed at your head. Does that link let us read your mind? I'll bet if I click on it it'd say 'I really want to walk down the Highway in New Jersey on the way to some italian place for a pseudo wedding with 15 geeks'? Missed ya at tech-ed, lucky you!

Hey Dan!

I forgot to blog about that fun experience. Doh! It was a blast though, and I'm glad we didn't get run over. :)
