ASP.NET 2.0 MVP Hacks and Tips

Wrox, one of most famous .NET publications, published a new book written by a group of Microsoft MVPs which contains several advanced hacks about ASP.NET for every professional .NET developer. This review will discuss the book.

ASP.NET 2.0 MVP Hacks and Tips
is the name of a special book from Wrox.  I say "special" because Wrox has not published many books similar to this one.

This advanced book (compared with other Wrox books) is written for professional .NET developers so readers should have a good background in .NET (especially ASP.NET 1.x and 2.0 plus C# language) to get the best result from reading this book.

From the book's name you may take that this book is useful for Microsoft MVPs, but each and every professional .NET developer can read and enjoy it.

MVP Hacks and Tips is written by seven Microsoft MVPs: David Yack, Jose Mayo, Scott Hanselman, Fredrik Normén, Dan Wahlin, J. Ambrose Little and Jonathan D. Goodyear and Wrox's famous name, Jim Minatel, is its Acquisitions Editor.

The book is short enough to not be boring.  The primary purpose of this book is to collect a great collection of hacks and tips that are worth knowing for every developer.  All of us have our own hacks, but rarely make them public; this book wants to share the personal hacks of seven MVPs with others.

The book consists of descriptions about many hacks and tips, ASP.NET and some other .NET related stuff.  Some hacks are inspired from external resources, such as blogs and articles.  The authors tried to give a good history and some ASP.NET 1.x equivalents of their hacks.

Personally, I highly recommend it for everyone who wants to have more information about ASP.NET.  Just do not forget to first have enough skills in .NET 2.0 before reading this book.  To get these skills you can read other great Wrox books, Professional ASP.NET 2.0 and Professional C# 2005.
