Best Book for Web Development

I have bought at least a dozen Web Development Books and this book has provided more practical development techniques than all the other books combined. As a previous evaluator has written, this book is the "Glue" the brings everything together. No book on this complex subject can do it all, but this book comes the closest of any I have read.

A quality learning tool and reference alike

This book provides a complete reference to the .Net Framework V1.1. A Concise book, written and laid out well with examples in both VB and C#. Although aimed at Intermediate-Advanced users, this book covers most of the grounding needed to take up new topics covered within itself. A knowledge of the .Net Framework V1.1 would be useful before using this book. The only bad point i could make about this book is that the code samples are written as 'in-page' rather than as code behind, which could mislead a novice to thinking that this is best practice, however it is also worth noting the book is not aimed at novice users.

You'll really read it, if someone doesn't steal it first!

Some books are promising and will probably be of great value, if you can only get around to reading them.This book draws you in, and entertains you while you learn A LOT. And I hate to say this: it makes you think. In a good way, though!
My friend took it to work at her web design firm, and it kept disappearing off her desk.

This is the place to start...

These two great minds have presented their work in a neat at thorough fashion.
Every chapter builds on the last with emphasis towards critical elements in computer hardware.
I thoroughly enjoyed the book, and the class I took at UCSB!
