Summary and Info
Some people may get confused by the fact that this is book is about half about inner guts of the II7 and how and what changed (pure gold for people who had to deal with several versions) and half a case study on how to push the limits of IIS from .NET.
The best way to approach reading this material is with a solid judgement on when to stop reading and go back to your project. Don't expect to read and absorb something this big in one breath. When you read a few chapters and things become clear in you mind, just go and use it and you can always come back for more when you need it.
It provides a lot of hard core info at the beginning and parts that are actually a case study repeat some of the general info latter so it's really, really not meant to be read cover to cover like a novel but as a kind of just-in-time information source.
