The authors--a group of experts inside and outside Microsoft--address all of the installation issues, followed by how to manage content and users. Case studies show how to integrate various Web technologies with Site Server and how to deploy public and private commerce sites.
Each section is well-organized and includes plenty of code examples and architectural diagrams. The writing isn't cluttered with formatting gimmicks but is rather a straightforward presentation of essential material. Though developers of all stripes should be able to handle the content, the book is best suited to those already experienced in Microsoft IIS and ASP development.
If you develop Microsoft Web sites, you should investigate Site Server. If you use this powerful tool, you should definitely have this guide on your shelf. --Stephen W. Plain
