Typically when you start learning ASP.NET Ajax all of the material centers around UpdatePanels and leaves out anything to do with the client-side scripts. This book will make you realize how much functionality you are missing by only using UpdatePanels.
This book features eight chapters. Each chapter holds a wealth of information. The book as a whole is essential to the understanding of the new Microsoft Ajax Library, it provides a detail look into how each aspect works, how each application or tool can be used, and how the reader can use each to their full advantage. The authors provide a greater understanding of what was once a closed topic, understood only by those who spent year dabbling in it.
