An excellent resource book! A step above the rest!


This is one of those book you wait a long time for and then when you get it you're glad you waited! The author has filled this book with some amazing information about Win32 programming.
If you do ANY programming in Win32 then this is probably the one and only book you'll need! I would highly recommend buying this book even if you only reference it occassioanlly!

Expert programmer? New to ASP? This may not be the book.


This book is as much for those beginning database programming with ADO as it is for those new to ASP. The problem is the emphasis seemed to be heavier on how to use the data-access objects of ADO, that it did on developing ASP applications.
If you're a rather experienced developer who has a strong understanding of accessing databases via ADO, consider another book altogether. Much of the material will be redundant for you.
Most of the Wrox books I've read are "quality". This one is certainly good, but if you happen to be an experienced programmer bridging your skillset over to the internet/ASP world, "Beginning ASP" by Wrox is more than sufficient. If you've read it and still want more, I'd skip this book and move on to one of the more advanced ASP books, perhaps "Professional ASP".

Thrilling


Have you ever read Essential ActionScript 2.0, by Colin Moock?

It's the blockbuster followup to his action packed Actionscript for Flash MX The Definitive guide and it just getting crazy as I read it. Now variables HAVE to be declared. It's like a fascism that these variables have to declare what type they are before anyone can interact with them. I picture them scurrying around the system architecture as if it were post-War Prague, carrying their papers just trying to get to their destinations. But there's more! There are ways around variable declaration, that fool the system into thinking one variable type is quite another and doing this brings about _system instability_. Yes, the revolution is on as some variable sneak through the system passing themselves off as others and then throwing a monkeywrench into the works. This is edge of your seat intrigue as only the Master, Colin Moock, can bring to the table.
