Default This Book - Great Disappointment

I'm very disappointed with this book! First of all, it did not follow the classic Wrox style of doing the case study as you go along through the book: as you introduce new concepts in a chapter you clearly show how they are implemented as part of the case study. Second: there were far too many omissions of critical steps, downloadable code didn't show the solution, and there were typo errors in the book. Wrox needs to take a little more time with these new technology books (as it did with the earlier ASP & .NET 1.x books) to get it right.

FYI, because of the issues with the code in this book, I've got another developer working through the code now. He's started posting some replacements and fixes in this forum. Please watch for them and I hope this helps you.

Keep watching the forum, more code fixes are on the way. Are there specific questions you need answered right now? Maybe I can help in the mean time.
