I have to choose one of the following books, and I didn't find many reviews besides the comments on the Amazon pages (which are mostly positive):
- Programming Microsoft ASP.NET 3.5 --- by Dino Esposito (Microsoft Press)
- Professional ASP.NET 3.5: In C# and VB --- by Bill Evjen, Scott Hanselman, Devin Rader (Wrox)
- Programming ASP.NET 3.5 --- by Jesse Liberty, Dan Maharry, Dan Hurwitz (O'Reilly)
- Pro ASP.NET 3.5 in C# 2008, Second Edition --- by Matthew MacDonald, Mario Szpuszta (Apress)
- ASP.NET 3.5 Unleashed --- by Stephen Walther (Sams)
- ASP.NET 3.5 Website Programming: Problem - Design - Solution --- by Chris Love (Wrox)
Can the owners of those books recommend one of them, considering my needs of learning:
- data binding from various sources (including generic collections, not only datasets from SQL Server with or without stored procedures),
- choosing the most adequate way of displaying various data in tabular format (including master-details in the same table, if possible),
- the basics of custom controls,
- the basics of master pages.
Also, if those topics are more detailed in other books, please give me a hint.
Environment: ASP.NET 2.0+, C# 2.0+
