If you are looking for a book to quickly get the basics of
MVC soyou can hit the ground running, I would recommend this book. It covers
enough of the details without boring the reader with endless monotony.
Make sure you have some understanding of ASP.NET and C#
because the book makes sure not to waste the readers' time going over too many
of the details of those.
For the Author
I am glad that the testing was left for the end of the book,
since it is a topic which would be more difficult for readers not experienced
with testing or testing frameworks. The section on caching is somewhat light. I
know that the book is intended to be read by developers familiar with ASP.NET,
so they should understand caching, but many developers using ASP.NET are not
familiar with it. For the next version it would be nice to see a little more in
there including something other than just output caching.
