It is not released yet. A few posts up from this I had posted the phase we're at. We're almost wrapped up with the final edits. This book is huge so the editing phase takes much longer than a 200 page book. We're sorry for the inconvenience about the release date. As one of the authors, I can attest that we're doing everything possible to get this released as soon as possible. Unfortunately, I'm still researching how to increase the number of hours in the day.

Default Amazon has the book available.

If you look on the webpage for Amazon.com it says that you can order it.

http://www.amazon.com/Professional-C...ds=asp.net+4.5

That they have the books in stock. So this is why I am confused.

That's not the book we are referring to. It's not Professional C# 4.5. It's ASP.NET Professional 4.5 in C# and VB. The link on Amazon is: http://jasong.us/ProASPnet45-AMZN.

Hope that helps!

Oh okay. I was confused just a bit here. They both are books with very similar titles. Sorry my bad. While I have you here, is the new book that you are going to be releasing soon going to do like Imar's book does and allow you to go step by step building a Website that is an actual application?

Thanks!

It's not, he just responded in a way that wasn't clear. The book that was linked is the book about C# and .NET. The book we're waiting for here is Professional ASP.NET 4.5 in C# and VB. They're completely different.

It will not. It's quite difficult in this book because:
  1. It's so large
  2. Coordinating an idea with the authors
  3. Not all of the content at a Pro level can fit into 1-2 applications.
To expand more on the last item, there are topics about switching the authentication providers and such. The problem with doing a real-world scenario in this book is that you simply wouldn't have a public website that uses Windows authentication (as an example). That's great feedback though and we'll definitely consider it for the next version.

Thanks again!

Default Lack of ASP.NET 4.5 books?

I have noticed that with the exception of APress an Wrox that most of the technical manual publishers have kind of shied away from publishing manuals on ASP.NET 4.5 despite the fact that is has been in final release since last September. In my opinion, there seems to be dearth of ASP.NET 4.5 books on the market these days as opposed to the amount of ASP.NET 4.0 and ASP.NET 3.0 books that were immediately on the market upon the release of a new ASP.NET version. Is this just me or is there something here that people don't know or aren't talking about? Also would like to know why there is a total lack of ECommerce books for versions ASP.NET 4.0 and ASP.NET 4.5. It seems like to me that after ASP.NET 3.5 was released there weren't too many ASP.NET books on ECommerce released? Do you know of any reason why?
PS the Reason I ask, is because there have been a number of people who have posted on the Wrox boards in regards to why there isn't a ECommerce Book for ASP.NET 4.0 or ASP.NET 4.5 published and on the market today.

I think one of the reasons why there aren't more ASP.NET 4.5 books is timing. Windows 8 seemed to be the area of focus that many developers were taking. Even within the realm of web development, ASP.NET MVC was a big area of focus.
I would give a similar answer with regards to ECommerce books. ECommerce is definitely a necessary and important topic for web developers, but it is not as much of a hot topic as it once was. I believe as Microsoft continues to push the One ASP.NET concept, these topics will come back into the limelight!
I really don't think there is any more to read into it than that however.
