Looking for a good book

P: n/a
I was browsing both the Amazon and Barnes & Noble websites
looking for some good books but there appears to be *so* many
and it's hard to tell which are going to be good or not.

I'm looking for one or two *good* books on the subjects of
ASP.NET and ADO.NET together. E.g., using ASP.NET on the
front end to communicate with a back end database via ADO.NET.
I'm hoping to find a mid-level type of book. I've been using PHP
and MySQL for the last 6+ years so I'm not unfamiliar with creating
database driven websites. However, I'm just unfamiliar with creating
database driven websites using the ASP/ADO.NET and it'd be nice
to find some good books targetted at someone like me.

So can you guys could recommend some *good* books I could
look at for purchase?

Thanks for your time and assistance!

That's surprising, I loved Pattison/Onions book - what didn't you like
about it?

I agree with the recommendation on Esposito's book. I'd also recommend
Programming Data Driven Web Applications with ASP.NET by Mack and Seven
(Sams Press).

Perhaps "hated" is too strong of a word. Let's just say I was very humbled
when reading this book. I considered myself a fairly skilled programmer
until I tried reading this book. I thought it dove deeeeep into the abyss
of the .NET framework and assumed you clearly understood all the concepts he
discussed ...which of course I didn't. I kept saying to myself
"..whoa...huh?...slow down baby!..."
