The book also emphasizes the invaluable coding techniques of object orientation and code behind, which will start you off on the track to building real-world websites right from the beginning—rather than just faking it with simplified coding practices.

    just a few chapters are crucial

    If you want to make dynamic web pages and your machine is running .NET, then perhaps the best way is to use Active Server Pages. This actually predates .NET. But with the rise of .NET and its main language, C#, MacDonald shows how ASP.NET 1.1 has gained in power and ease of use. He takes 1000 pages to show this. Because Microsoft now offers a huge amount of functionality in ASP.NET and extensive integration into .NET. Like how Visual Studio can [should?] be used as your IDE to write C# code for your ASPs. By the way, despite what Microsoft has touted about how you have a choice of programming languages if you use .NET, it has become increasingly clear, via this book and others, that C# is the de facto choice. Chapters 7, 9, 10 and 11 are probably the key sections of the book. These actually focus on coding the ASP. And of these, chapter 10, on state management, may be the focal point, if you consider a set of ASPs as a finite state machine. So if you want to quickly learn ASPs, try concentrating on those chapters.
