Good introduction to the ASP.NET platform. I use it together with the .NET Framework documentation and have found it to be a valuable companion. If you are interested in best practises for architecting web applications with ASP.NET this will not be your best resource. For architecture I'd recommend another WROX book which I've listed below.

This book gives you a lot of background. A lot - way too much. I was looking for more code examples to real life ASP pages. Instead the book is full of 'this could be included in your code if you wanted this to ..... ' It is written as though an excited kid is telling you a story, and all you get is a bunch of rambling.
