Truly a best buy on Active Server Pages

I spent several hours browsing ASP books at my local (and very well stocked) library and at the bookstore whose name won't be mentioned here. None of the ASP books I looked at seemed comprehensible to a beginner.

Normally I avoid "Dummies" books like the plague. Most I've seen are poorly written, disorganized and rarely leave with me a feeling that my money was well-spent.

Hatfield's "Active Server Pages Dummies" I'm very pleased to say is the exception.

Within 30 minutes of receiving the book from Amazon, most of my unanswered questions about Active Server Pages were resolved. Mr. Hatfield takes the beginner from A to Z in a measured, thorough pace that addresses each point completely and in context.

An added bonus for me was the appendix on Microsoft VisualInterdev. I had spent several hours the night before banging my head against the wall trying to figure out how to use it.

With Hatfield's excellent example I was up and runnin! g with VisualInterdev literally in a matter of minutes.

I've browsed every other ASP title available and for the beginner, nothing even comes close to Bill Hatfield's "Active Server Pages for Dummies." It is terrific.
