One of the best programming books I have ever read. Easy to understand and has a lot of in depth coverage. I liked using Sams ASP in 24hours to jump start me for my work and used this bigger book to get a better understanding.

The time frame was great for me to pace myself and it was reasonable for a first timmer to ASP... The material is easy to understand for almost everybody. I thought the book was a great way to transition from a beginner to Pro in ASP. If you need to program in ASP in a week, I recommend reading 'Sams ASP in 24 hours' and then read the details through this book...

I was hoping to get a book that would take me from being an ASP newbie (having had programs like Drumbeat write ASP for me) to being an intermediate developer. I found some the topics covered to be strictly for beginners. While I did find some use for the database information, they don't cover many other practical problems like sending e-mail (using CDONT's) which are relatively simple to learn.

This book was very helpful. I went from knowing nothing about ASP to being a confident developer. A CD with the source code would've been nice, however it is all available online. It's step by step approach was logical and easy to follow. The authors enthusiasm for the topic really helps grip the reader.

This book is a must for anyone wanting to learn ASP. It goes over basics as well as some advanced ASP topics.

This was a really terrific book. It explained everything very clearly and in detail(but not too much detail!), and showed all examples. I had tried ASP for Dummies, and was very unimpressed, but this was great!
