I purchased this book months ago when Borders was closing down, and added it to my book collection. I'm an Access developer, and over the holiday, I intended to introduce myself to SharePoint development, to lay the foundation learning Access Services for the coming year. However, my daughter, home for Christmas break, introduced me to twitter bootstrap and Django, and sparked a new passion to learn these instead. I love Microsoft and so adapted my journey to learning Visual Studio ASP.NET MVC, rather than Django and Python.

On day one, I spent the better part of the day in an online learning lab for MVC with VB.NET, which proved to be a clumsy and awkward introduction, which left me feeling a bit inept, reluctant to approach the subject on day two. However, remembering guidance that I culled from Eric Hoffer's "The True Believer", I selected this thin little book from the shelf. Hoffer basically said that if an author couldn't relate their ideas, or concepts of a subject matter succinctly, then it was best to avoid the author's words. I always check out what the "thin" books have to say.

This book is fantastic! I had no means of understanding the concept of MVC until I opened this book, and very simplistically and clearly, this author related the full breath of this technology and how it is used, without hours of jibber-jabber, or rambling, anecdotal bloat of a 5 pound book. Everything is falling right into place. This is great communication, and I will look for other works by this author.

tried a few examples- v tough to follow and find out whats going on
there is no sequence of steps to follow as would be expected from the title-you be better off looking at another book for learning mvc

advantages- it give you some idea how it works but basically compared to the price and other packt publishing books this one doesn't hit the mark

for the price you pay- paying more didn't mean better quality

This book is, as the title says, a quick overview (around 190 pages plus 50 pages of various appendixes, one of which is about his sample application CarTrackr) on all the aspects of the ASP.NET MVC 1.0 framework.

It starts with the usual "File>New Project" experience and then moves on to a quick overview of the different parts of the framework and the extensibility points that ASP.NET MVC has.

Then it goes more in detail, talking about the main actors (Controllers, Routing, Views) and explaining the some of the most important extensibility points (like custom ActionResults and ActionFilters), Ajax and finally talking about testing, deployment and how to mix classic ASP.NET WebForms with ASP.NET MVC.

What I liked: the chapter about Ajax: it covers the Ajax helper methods and the JsonResult. It performs the same tasks both using ASP.NET Ajax and jQuery: it was very nice to see the same thing implemented with the two techniques. I also really like the chapter about deployment which explains how to configure IIS6 to use ASP.NET MVC: unfortunately not everyone already migrated to IIS7 and this is very great information.

What I didn't like: This is more a personal taste than else, but I wouldn't talk about the possibility of using the Request object to read the querystring parameters: true, this is possible, but it's something that should be avoided. And I wouldn't use the Visual Studio UnitTest wizard to create the tests for my controllers.
