I had the same isssues as projectNexus regarding this book and ended up purchasing a wrox book which I beleive is not on the list of books purchased by Wiley.
"Beginning C# Web Applications with Visual Studio .NET"
This book is designed for c# programmers moving to ASP.NET but as a Classic ASP developer who uses Homesite for Classic asp developement I have found it a good balance between foundation instuction and advanced topics.
(I am only up to chapter four as of now)

I have searched high and low for a book that is a "beginners guide to best practices".
They are either "hello world" or "do it like in C++ / Java but..."

I know have a combination of 3 books to fill my simple needs.
Beginning C# Web Applications with Visual Studio .NET mentioned above for ASP.NET methods theory.
Prof C# for syntax
and
ASP.NET WP Problem - Design - Solution for best practises code examples.

I really like wrox books but feel that my area of developement is so common place that there should have been a book to suit me needs better.

Still gratefull you took on Wrox books, looking forward to your new editions.
