Who is this Book for?The intended audience for this book is three fold. To begin with, program managers and product managers that are interested in furthering their web endeavors and using all of the available tools and resources that Microsoft provides. With planning being a key element in any large scale Internet or Intranet development effort at least a fourth of the book will be devoted to planning, machine requirements, and development time frames. Secondly, the book will be heavily weighted towards using the Personalization and Membership features of Site Server 3.0 and will appeal directly to developers and consultants who have to implement and solve real world problems with Site Server. Finally the book will provide readers with real world examples that they can then apply to the problem that they are working on.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book is the worst. It's confusing and hard to follow. It dose a poor job of covering Personalization all together.
The other side, this book explain well, and step by step, but if you implementing or try to follow the example, it's very poor b coz there's no relationship about theory and the code, and when you follow the examples you'll get very confusion. If you really dont know about P&M programming, this book useless but if you just want to know the theory this book so good.....
