This review is from: Pro ASP.NET MVC Framework (Expert's Voice in .NET) (Paperback)
This is an absolutely fantastic book about ASP.NET MVC.
Steve's book is perfect for developers who want to dive into ASP.NET MVC and use it for real-world professional projects.
Early in the book he introduces and explains unit testing and loosely coupled design concepts (POCO classes, dependency injection, inversion of control, etc), and demonstrates how to use them when building a small ASP.NET MVC application. If you are new to these concepts I think you'll find Steve's walkthrough of them easy to follow and understand, and nicely grounded in the context of real-world ASP.NET MVC application usage.
The second half of the book goes into great depth on ASP.NET MVC features and does a phenomenal job explaining how to take maximum advantage of them. He delivers a nice mixture of feature-usage information combined with practical advice on how to best take advantage of the features, pitfalls to avoid with them, and why things work the way they do.
All in all an amazingly good book. I highly recommend it.
