This text is not a how-to for a beginner. It is also not light reading. It is a dense book; lots of information crammed into it. You have to bring your experience to this book for the full weight of the teaching to come to bear. I highly recommend it to application architects and development team leads.
Yes, the target is clearly not defined and if you want to get a work done by reading this book, please forget it.
If you implemented membership and roles, and seeking some extra advice may be you might find it useful. It does not really explain the various systems, illustrating each well enough.
I opened Forms Authetication, hoping to learn how to implement it in my project, just to read more than a page of people creating 50 years cookie. Is 2 or 3 lines of sentenses not enough to let someone know about 50 years cookie?
This book provides the reader with material that only an individual who works on the Microsoft ASP.Net team can supply. Stefan does a marvelous job at giving the reader insight into the "plumbing" of the ASP.Net runtime. In addition, the manual contains excellent coverage of the new ASP.Net 2 membership and role management services! If you are an ASP.Net professional who wishes to gain a deeper understanding of the product outside of how to write code against it, pick it up!
If you are simply looking for a book teaching you how to use Role Management, Membership and other cool features offered by ASP.NET 2.0, this book might not be a good fit for you because it tends to explain lots of background info before jumping into the new features. However if what you want is to understand how all these puzzles interact with each other in the ASP.NET security world, this book should be your first choice.
