0764597663.01._SCLZZZZZZZ_V52483501_David Yack got a bunch of folks together and assembled ASP.NET 2.0 MVP Hacks from Wrox. Take a look at the picture on the right, totally looks like we're all in the same room with our twelve-sided dice, no? ;)

Seriously though, it's a good collection of "messing with ASP" hacks. I did the sections on HttpHandlers/HttpModules and the ViewState hacks. Some of the content came from my blog. I also pulled in content, with permission and attribution from a number of other smart ASP.NET blogs. Most hacks work on both ASP.NET 1.x and 2.0 as well.

A book with a Brady Bunch cover full of nerds, yes.

A book with a lot of slick hacks, totally.

Big ups and congrats to David for pulling it all together, he's really been working hard on this book and I'm happy to have been involved along with the other (very seasoned) authors David Yack, Joe Mayo, Fredrik Normén, Dan Wahlin, J. Ambrose Little, and Jonathan Goodyear.

Total List Price: $89.98
Buy Together Today: $57.88

If you're looking to get this and Pro ASP.NET 2.0, the total price is only $57.88 on Amazon right now as a bundle. To be clear, the content in these two books doesn't overlap. The Hacks book is focused on specific and finite tips, tricks, and undocumented features and manipulations of ASP.NET Features, while the Pro ASP.NET book starts with fundamentals and builds feature by feature to advanced topics advanced to Professional ASP.NET 2.0 developers.
