    Excellent beginners guide to ASP.NET security

    I was very pleased with the topics covered in this book. Barry Dorrans delivered a very non-interesting subject in a manner that kept your attention throughout. I wish more entry-level developers would read this before getting started. They would certainly have a better understanding of ASP.NET security and how to implement better coding practices up front.
