The most important thing about the book – it is reasonably compact. When I got an ASP.NET MVC project to support, I knew nothing about this project. The book did help me in two days. It gives you a basis to understand how to write ASP.NET MVC applications. The book has written in clear and compact way. The author describes how to route http-requests, how to establish relations between controllers and views, etc. I recommend the book to everyone who has to use ASP.NET MVC right now, but doesn’t have any knowledge about that technology
There's just not enough depth for each topic. Otherwise it would be a good primer for getting started without having to slog through a 3 inch detailed reference on the subject. Another 40 pages would have made a big difference. I think your money is better spent elsewhere.
I write this with mixed feelings. I bought this book for several different reasons - 1. I wanted an up to date view on the subject since technology is ever so changing. 2. I did have a good experience with a different book from a self-author and thought I'd give it a go again. 3. The chapter outline looked promising. 4. The author won me over on his background.Just be advised that this book is incredibly short. I mean really short. There is not much elaboration, and this would do nicely as a series of blog posts on the subject.
This is a simple, beginner book on learning MVC, but problem is TOO simple. Whole books has about 137 pages but there is lot of white space on each page, so the real content has only about 3/4. Another words, this book actually has 100 pages. Only touch each topic a little, not for the beginner to use. Although this book cost less but don't think is worth to buy. Worse, the author prefer coding with "Razor", not "ASPX", I have to learn new language alone with reading. Not sure why just use ASP.NET coding standard?!I like the Youtube "[...]" better. You learn more from this video than the book.
