There's some free chapter excerpts up at the Wrox site from Professional ASP.NET 2.0 Special Edition. Go check them out! There will be a more coming in the next few weeks, watch for them.

Also, note that there's a 50% off sale on Wrox/Wiley books at BookPool.com right now. You can get the Special Edition for only US$29.95 which is pretty cheap. It's $32.99 at Amazon, but the shipping is free, so you'll have to do the math on the shipping and see which is cheaper for you.

There's another Pro (not fessional) ASP.NET 2.0 from Apress that's $40.94 at Amazon. I'm reading it now to compare it to our Wrox/Wiley verison. It's lead by Matthew MacDonald who knows his stuff. I enjoyed his Pro .NET Windows Forms 2.0 book, so I'll be seeing how this competing book reads as I wade throught it.

Awesome... thx for the heads up.

By the way, are you going to be teaching any .NET courses in the Seattle area early next year?

Love the podcast... keep up the excellent work!

Nice, how about a free upgrade if i already bought the book. (i.e. PDF)

I just got the regular Pro ASP.Net book in the mail, and so far seems like a great book. It is cool that there is a now a special edition, but I have to admit that I feel a little disappointed that I am missing out on it after putting down the cash for the regular book. Is there anyway to get the extra material in the special edition book in electronic format?

I'll second Cameron's question. If you're in the Seattle area I'd make the time to be there.

Your link that mentions free shipping is for the non-special edition.
The special edition costs EXTRA to ship and is not even free to ship if you subscribe to Amazon Prime.
