This is an awesome book but it's not for everyone, and in some ways the author states this himself in the beginning of the book. This title is basically targeted at people who have started their ASP.NET career as MVC developers and may have skipped web forms and learning the broader ASP.NET architecture and platform. I know from personal experience that you can actually get pretty far in ASP.NET development by diving straight into MVC and just learning how the framework works without initially investing time in learning the lower level workings of the ASP.NET platform.

This book contains tons of helpful chapters for developers who have not spent much time outside of the confines of the MVC framework. Discussions include the overall Application and Request life cycles starting at IIS and when they are mapped to ASP.NET and how they are translated to the MVC framework. A lot of MVC books just skim over this process and start with the controllers and actions, which is actually pretty deep into the life cycle and skips a ton of steps. The book covers HTTP modules and handlers and many ASP.NET services and life cycle events that every serious developer should know.

This book also includes some great content on the new ASP.NET Identity system and takes you through all the steps of setting up a simple but modern authentication system. A lot of books only skim the surface of this process and leave out a lot of code, but the author spends a couple chapters walking through this and it's very helpful. There are also some good chapters on caching, which can be a confusing topic (in my opinion).

A couple minor gripes: there are a couple less useful chapters.

I've been working with ASP.Net (web forms) for almost ten years, and just recently started working with ASP.Net MVC. I was hoping to get more in-depth knowledge of MVC from this book. Unfortunately that was not the case.
This book will give a new developer a good understanding of the ASP.Net foundation (life cycle events, modules, handlers, caching, state, etc.), but nothing that is new to an experienced ASP.Net developer (web forms or MVC).

The author likes to create elaborate sample applications, and the point he is trying to make is getting diluted and obscured by fluff. The book would benefit if the number of pages was cut by half.

Format: Paperback
Most of the book content refers to very old .net components. i.e. cache, httphandler, httpmodule
If you are in to .net development for more than 5 years then you may not gain much from this book.
simple things are explained in a complex manner that is really bad

It's a good book for beginners, but for more advanced users is useless!
The book reached the main goal described by author, teach how the mvc platform works.
Anyway, it was a good acquisition for build my own library.
