I was recently asked to review "ASP.NET Distributed Data Applications" from Wrox Press. Normally I tend to shy away from doing book reviews because in order to do it right, it usually means I have to read the book and that takes time! On this occasion, I decided to make an exception because the book is by Alex Homer and Dave Sussman. Both are excellent authors which bodes well for the book, but the real reason I'm going to spend the time is because I don't usually use a lot of books and yet I basically wore out my copy of the original "Professional Active Server Pages" which was written by none other then Alex Homer. Here's hoping this one will be just as good...

I'm actually still waiting for my reviewer's copy to arrive, but in the mean time I thought I would post a sample chapter so you can take a look at the book until I get a chance to take a look at it.

Update: The Review

So I finally got the book. While that took a little while, what took longer was me actually getting around to reading it. So, without any further ado, here's the review...

Sorry for the delay.
