ASP.NET MVC 1.0 Quickly

Today I was pretty surprised when going through my feeds to read that a friend of mine, Maarten Balliauw, has a written a book. The title of the book is ASP.NET MVC 1.0 Quickly:

It’s been quite a job, but there it is: Packt just announced my very first book on their site. It is titled “ASP.NET MVC 1.0 Quickly”, covering all aspects ASP.NET MVC offers in a to-the-point manner with hands-on examples. The book walks through the main concepts of the MVC framework to help existing ASP.NET developers to move on to a higher level. It includes clear instructions and lots of code examples. It takes a simple approach, thereby allowing you to work with all facets of web application development. Some keywords: Model-view-controller, ASP.NET MVC architecture and components, unit testing, mocking, AJAX using MS Ajax and jQuery, reference application and resources.

I always thought, and still think, that writing a book is a massive amount of work. Therefore i really have a lot of respect for people that have the courage to actually write a real book.
