I was reading an interview at SitePoint with Dino Esposito, an “ASP.NET Expert.” I know he has written several books (apparently well rated and sold), and I’ve read several articles by him before. But this comment scares me a bit:

“I don’t write much real-world code. But automated testing is key. Period.”

So, he’s an “Expert,” but doesn’t write much real-world code? Should we be looking elsewhere for ASP.NET 2.0 books? I generally like to learn from someone who has been there, done that. Since I don’t like Wrox books much (too big and disjointed usually), I’ve avoided their book. Hopefully, Fritz Onion’s book will be out sooner rather than later.
