Best introduction to both c# and ASP.NET

I'm a Coldfusion programmer and I've been trying to learn ASP.NET for years now. Every time I picked up a book I've gotten bored with the dense detail of most books. They tell you things that you will never need or will forget when you need it. Many like to go on and on just to beef up the size. I can easily say that bigger is not always better. This book does a great job at giving you just the basics. Just the fact I need no more no less. It's taken me 2 readings to get to a point where I can understand how to construct a very basic web application. The book focuses on illustrating each concept by walking thru working code nothing too detailed but enough to understand what is happening. It's true that the book samples are way too small so you should get the code. A previous posts tells you where to get it. Also grab MS Visual Studio Web Developer Express Edition to run the code. It's out of print now. But it's only a bit out of date but the basics are there. You have to understand the basics before you do anything. I've always meant to use one of the more detailed book to get what I need. I would pair this book with a reference book and that would be enough to get started. I wish the author would update it but I suspect that won't happen. I wish I would have found this book years ago. I now feel that I can pick a project and by using this book and a more advance book I can get to a point were I can deliver it in ASP.NET. Bottom line, buy one of the used copies. It's an oldie but a goodie.

Great preparation for in-depth reference books

If you can still find one of these out-of-print books at the clearance prices, grab it. I program in a lot of different languages and am moving to C# & .Net for my job. I find when I go to more advanced books which have the information I need there are lots of little items that are assumed you know that really slow me down. But most beginner books are a waste of time. For me this book is a great aid. I'm finding it allows reading through quickly without boring you with minor programming details while still filling in the stuff that gets left out in top level books, all of which seem to assume experienced developers would already have some level of C# & .NET experience. (After going through this easy to read book, you will have the experience.) Two Problems: 1.) For those of us who find ourselves depending on reading glasses, the code text in the graphic examples tends to be a little small. So having the code to download and review is a real plus. 2.) The book is out of print and the original publishing company's website is no longer available. So the download links are no good. But ... As of 10/22/2005: I found a copy of the code to download from Thomson Course Technology. If interested in this book you should probably grab a copy of the download before it disappers too.

Excellent Book

I am a show-me person and the step-by-step instructions with illustrations were just what I needed. I was able to write a program within the hour.

Great Book - I Read it Then I purchased.

I have read 7 books on C#. I obtained Aneesha Bakaharia's book from the library, read it, liked it so much that I had to purchase.This book teaches you what you need to learn quickly. I like the "visual" aspect of seeing the program. This book is 530 pages long - but has more pertinent information - with no "filler" than other C# books that are 1,000+ pages. If I had to be critical, there is not much in this book about Visual Studio.net. The approach to completing some of the samples is different and more productive when using Visual Studio.Net.
