"This book provides you with the background necessary for building ASP.NET applications. It covers what nearly every introduction book covers, the ASP.NET controls, data access, master pages, and so on. What sets it apart from most other books is how clearly the material is presented to the reader. You won't find some golden piece of information you've never heard before but that's not the focus of the book. For a beginner, it's a perfect choice."
