Professional ASP.NET 2.0 - Coming VERY soon!
Bill Evjen beat me to it, but it's true, the big Professional ASP.NET 2.0 book we've been working on for longer than you know is coming out in the next 2 weeks!
UPDATE: Madness! There's a sale on all Wrox/Wiley books at BookPool, and consequently you can pre-order our book for 50% off. Not sure how long that will last.
It's chock full of good information - well over a 1000 pages - and I think you'll enjoy it.
Here's the Table of Contents. I know that I hate buying a book when I only really need just a few chapters. We tried to pack a great deal of information into this book with enough broad strokes to make the beginner developer have to work at it, while the advanced developers still get valuable new details in each chapter.

It was tech-edited by such .NET luminaries as J. Michael Palermo who personally beat the crap out of me and made my chapters that much better. To all the editors, reviewers, and tech editors who responded to my IMs and 3am emails, and to my wife who put up with me up late for over a year, I thank you. To Bill and Devin, thanks for working so hard and including me in this project that we all started well over a year ago (and Bill nearly 2 years!) To Farhan and Srini who each contributed content and reviewed much, thanks for reviewing my code and for the opportunity to review yours.
I hope you guys enjoy it. We worked really hard.
